Munchkin is going through what some people might call a difficult stage. She, at almost 7 years old, is convinced that her parents are against her. She is very vocal about this and she is very very stubborn.
I am told I am the worst mommy EVER at least twice a day, every day. I really am at a loss as to how to get her through this nasty phase she's in. I thought maybe she just needed more attention, being the middle child and the only girl, so I tried special time with just her and I - and though she's great during that special time, she just comes home to rub it in her brother's faces and go right back to being Princess Petulance.
She's in her room right now for pinching her brother. It's been about 10 minutes and she has not stopped yelling the injustice of her situation throughout the house yet.
"You're AGAINST me!"
"No one LOVES me!"
"I HATE Bug and Goober! This is ALL THEIR FAULT!"
"I want to COME OUT!"
and so on and so on.... I can't wait for school to start.
