I have a 4 year old. The absolutely most exhausting thing is that she is always interrupting me. I sit for a minute she interrupts. I talk on phone. I write a list. She does play by herself sometimes. I find I let her watch way too many movies just so I get a minute to form a thought.
She is relentless about asking for things. I mean things I said yes to! She will ask a million times for me to read a story. I say wait a minute I am-doing whatever else like bathroom or talking on phone or cleaning. She will ask and ask and ask and ask. When I just keep saying wait a minute. Over and over and over.
you know what she sometimes sounds like? The bratty girl for Willi Wonka. But she isn't necessarily spoiled (much?)
