Flashback Friday: Age 3 Architect

Me: Want to build a castle, Abby?

Abby: Yes!! Let’s build it WAY tall like this! (Arms sweeping from the ground to the sky so wildly it throws her off balance. Clearly this shit’s going to be tall)

I have an apple in one hand as the other hand starts forming the foundation to this monstrosity she’s so dramatically demonstrating.

Me: Let’s put these bottom blocks like this.

Abby: Not like that. Give me these. Like this.

Me: OK, then how about these across here like this?

Abby: No. No not like that. Give me these.

Me: Ok, you’re running the show, boss.


Abby: Mom! Help me build this castle!

Me: I am helping.

Abby: No you’re not; you’re just watching me build it! Give me these.

To teach her that she is being unreasonable. I knock it over

Abby: <Blank stare> She slaps the apple out of my hand

We had an understanding.
