Lately, my three year old has taken to repeating a phrase that is like nails on a chalkboard every time I hear it.
“It’s not fair!”
There are variations to this phrase, as well.
“But mooom….it’s not fair!”
“It’s not fair, mommy!”
“But, but, but…it’s not fair!”
Any way it’s said, you’d think I had a teenager in the house, not a toddler.
Apparently, life is rough for three year olds.
I’m not sure where exactly she picked up the phrase, since it’s not something commonly said in our house.
But, curse whoever or whatever introduced it into her vocabulary.
Oh, in case you’re wondering, these are my many ways of being unfair:
- I feed her.
- I give her a bath.
- I clean up the craptacular mess in the pamper she refuses to let go of yet.
- Oh, wait, I even play with her.
Like I said, it’s a hard knock life for three year olds.
