My Son is Difficult… Because He Thinks Its Funny To See Me Lose It!

by Leila on September 3, 2011

My dear sweet 4 year old son: Mommy how do you spell cat?

Me: C-A-T (we are practicing spelling and word recognition)

Him: Something – A – aaaand.. ummm whats that other letter?

Me: Huh? It’s C-A-T. Please repeat.

Him: I can’t. I can only say A. I can’t say the other ones.

Me: What other letters can’t you say? (I know what you are doing, dammit!)

Him: C and T

Me: You just said them!

Him: Um…. no I didn’t…. (He said with a big ole grin)

Me: You can’t tell me you can’t say something and say it at the same time. That is lying!

Him: No, that’s me being difficult.

…….. He then ran out of the room laughing saying, “I looooove yooooou Mommy!”

It’s not that damn funny to see me lose it. He always antagonizes me and then he laughs at me. He likes to get under my skin as humor. He loves making fun of me. I have NO IDEA where he got this from.

No idea.

He is lucky he is cute.

        My 9 year old daughter is freaking worse!!!! Hormones are going to be the death of me.

  2. Kids do the craziest stuff and I think they know that they are doing it too!!! At least my son does….. I really agree this is why kids are cute, otherwise we wouldn’t let them get away with it. ;)

      Sometimes I think “Oh he isn’t purposely doing this!” but then.. ugh.. I’m always wrong. Kids wouldn’t get away with anything if they weren’t so cute… much like kittens. Kittens are completely insane, evil and calculated!

      This could be a phase right?! I mean… he can grow out of this and be picture perfect and never want to do anything to see Mommy lose it when he is 16. Yeah, thats it.

    You have to admit that it is kinda cute…. I am so scared of how D will turn out.  She has my sense of humor. I’m doomed! 

    1. It is very cute… and he is lucky I think it is!!

    I feel your pain and his laughter!  My son is 9 )yes 9!) and he still enjoys being difficult. I pray your son outgrows it because I don’t think mine ever will.

    1. My Dad is still waiting for me to grow out of the same thing… we are all doomed ;)
