Stella threw a bowl of dry cheerios on the ground. This is the conversation that we had
"Stella could you please get off the chair and pick up those cheerios."
"Mom, I can't I am busy."
"Oh, you're busy are you."
"Yes I am busy."
In the mean time she climbs off the chair and is looking at the cheerios.
"Well I think you should be busy cleaning up those cheerios."
"I can't pick them up because my body hurts."
"That is interesting your body hurts?"
"Well I still think you should pick up the cheerios."
She picks one up and looks at it.
"Mom my hands are dirty, I can't pick them up."
Stella truly is a diva, she is too good to pick up her own messes! Not to mention using some pretty good excuses not to help. I think she has picked up those excuses from someone in our household.
