is they don’t come with a manual. They don’t have an explanation for their behavior. They are completely unable to be understood. They don’t have the capacity for logic.
Aviana:(pitifully) My throat hurts.
Me: That’s because you’ve been screaming and crying and tantruming for over an hour. Are you ready to calm down and come in? (She has to go on the porch to tantrum)
Aviana: No, I want to be able to stream and twy where ever I want to and I don’t want to talk in a normal voice!!!!
As near as I can tell, all that set off this morning’s bout of insanity was she didn’t want to hear me read to Brielle. She kept crying, ” I don’t want to hear anyfing! I don’t want to see anyfing!” and generally being ugly until I sent her to sit on her bed. She just escalated from there. She also tried to take off all her clothes and tantrum in the buff, but I put the kibosh on that.
I have no idea.
They both are sleeping now.
If I had the ingredients for a Captain and coke, I’m pretty sure I’d have one. Or six.
