Abby's newest thing is to have an excuse or an 'alternative answer' whenever she is in trouble or is told no. For example: say it's 20min. until dinner and Abby asks for a snack. Naturally, we reply with, 'not right now, it's almost dinner time.' and she will come back with 'I didn't mean have a snack right now, I meant have a snack tomorrow!' Sometimes this grates on our last nerve, and other times she is so creative we have to laugh. A perfect example is an event from this morning......
Abby takes a book, throws it on the floor and kicks it.
Me: 'Abigail, we do not throw books on the floor and kick them. Now, pick up the book.'
Abby: 'I didn't do that, I put the book on the floor real fast and I moved it with my foot!'
hahahaha! Oh, Abby!
