Are you smarter than a pre-schooler

As I have mentioned, Addi and Sam started a new daycare a few weeks ago. So each night we get a report on how Addi has been, then we have a few hours at home to work on slight behavior modifications before the next morning. Right now we are working on having good "listening ears" and "using our words." Addi has a tendency to get frustrated and just start crying, then freaking out, when usually it's not a huge deal at all. Jay likes to take these little moments and remind me that she's just like me.

Case in point: This past Saturday the Dettman's came over for a few hours. The guys moved some boxes over to the new house while Jenny and I refereed spent quality time with the kids. Usually the girls get along pretty well until nap time, then the fighting begins. Mostly just like sisters so it's always quickly resolved. And Sam and Ryan are the same age, so I'm sure the trend will continue.

Anyway, the girls had been playing nicely for a few hours when Addi came tearing downstairs, crying. Jill followed her with a perplexed look on her face. After calming Addi down we asked her what the problem was and she said that she was sad because Jill wouldn't call her "Mommy." Jill said, "She's NOT Mommy. She's Addi." And every time Jill said that, Addi got more upset.

Poor Jill. It's hard to explain to a 3 year old that Addi is just nuts.
