Sassy has been displaying some strange qualities as of late...
She's rather become the little pessimist around here, and I'm not quite sure I fancy that.
First off, she's been prefacing requests with I-know-the-answer-will-be-no-but...
I mean, really?!?
In all honesty, I would say Sassy gets a yes response here a lot more often than a no response when it comes to making requests. We try pretty hard to stay positive and allow her to do things that she wants to do within reason, so I'm at a loss for where this is coming from.
She also has major issues with we'll see.
I must admit, I use we'll see pretty frequently. But, it's almost always a we'll see pending good behavior or a we'll see taking into account contributing factors and rarely a we'll see meaning I'm too lazy to deal with the ramifications of no or a we'll see as in fat chance. I'm not a big proponent of stringing my children along.
Well, lately, any time I say we'll see, Sassy says, but that always turns into a NO.
As in, not.a.chance, Missy.
Really, though, it doesn't.
So, I don't know what's caused Sassy to be so sketchy. It's like she doesn't trust me or something. It makes me sad.
Have any of you gone through this with your little ones? Any advice for one SPH Mama?
