When my son was about 4 years old he would dramatically and drastically overreact to situations. Whether he lost a game of Candyland (which caused him drop to the floor in pathetic defeat) -or listened to me say “no” to his 5th request for ice cream (“But you NEVER let us have ANY treats”!!!). But my favorite of all, I think was when he came running around the corner in our house only to run smack into one of the kitchen barstools. Unhurt but embarrassed, he yelled at the chair “I DO NOT LIKE YOU CHAIR! YOU ARE NOT MY FRIEND! YOU ARE NOT COMING TO MY BIRTHDAY PARTY”!
Not missing a beat, my then 7 year old (who, even then, was just as sarcastic as she is today at 10) daughter responded with “That’s too bad, Brady. Chair had a really good present for you too”.
