It amazes me every day, how much my 4 3/4 year old daughter, Campbell, acts like a 15 year old. She's smart as a whip and talks like it too. Just the other day, my 3 year old son Caiden was bugging her, imagine that. And Campbell said, "Stop it Caiden, or I'll eat you for breakfast!" She said she heard it on Spiderman. Lovely, just lovely.
Campbell got into a little bit of trouble at school one day because she wasn't listening. I had a talk with her and so did my husband a little later. He asked her why she got into trouble, to which she replied, "Stop Dad, it's my life!." What the heck???? I don't remember having that smart mouth when I was a kid! This must be payback for something my husband did! :-)
I caught her one day outside throwing sand at her brother. I was inside watching. I ran out and asked why she did it. She said, without hesitating, "His face just got in the way." Then she asked how I saw her. I told her I looked through the window. She asked which window. She said she was sorry she got caught. Needless to say, a timeout followed.
My son, thank goodness, hasn't gotten to that level yet. He still says things that are cute. Like "chick mix" for chex mix, and kriggonite for kryptonite. Although the pants full of poo thing is not cute. He thought Spiderman going #2 on the potty (with raisins) was the coolest thing, talked about it all night. But it didn't help one bit. I'm giving up for a while.
