Revenge of a two-year-old

Ariah’s new favorite way to play pretend to reverse the rolls of parent and daughter and vengefully put us in our places. For example, last night we were eating dinner on the front porch, enjoying the nice weather. Ariah said, “Daddy, you need to move. I want to sit there.” I said, “I was sitting here first. It’s not nice to order people to move.” She took this very hard. Tonight, we happened to eat on the porch again, and she beat me to the same spot, though this didn’t occur to me until she said, “You need to say … can I sit there?” So I said, “Can I sit there?” “No,” she snapped. “This is my spot. You can never sit in other people’s spots. Ha ha ha.”
