Seriously - if this kid does not turn out to be like the Presidents lawyer when he grows up, he will have missed the entire point of his existence. He argues every single moment he is awake. Even when I state things as a non-negotiable. ALL things are argued about. What kind of bread his sandwich is on, what kid of peanut butter (smooth or crunchy), what color shirt he wears, what jeans he wears (they all look alike b/c I got them on crazy sale), what toys he plays with, every single time he opens his mouth ALL DAY he is arguing. He doesn't want to brush his teeth and when I give up and send him to bed he insists he has cavities and HAS to brush. He doesn't want to wear a coat, hes FREEZING - not THAT coat! The OTHER coat (he only has one - I don't know which other coat he's talking about). He wants his FIRETRUCK, no, wait, he wants Lightning McQueen!! He wants mac and cheese, no wait, he wants YOGURT! No, actually he wants a PB&J, NO - he wants an apple and a banana! (I do not cater to his food wants - I make one thing, if he doesn't want to eat he doesn't have to)
It's driving me up the wall. I try not to engage him, I try SO HARD not to engage in the argument and just go about whatever it is that needs to get done. But he just keeps going. He NEVER stops arguing.
It's getting to the point that he's either arguing, or he's sleeping. I don't think I can take it anymore. He'll be 3yo on Jan 10, 2012. I'm going INSANE. Help please??
