Over the past few years, and more so in the last year, Akila has become addicted to calling names when she is even just a teeny bit upset. I know at some point this will turn into swearing, and I dread that day.
I was asking her what kind of cereal she wanted this morning and was listing the options. She said, "yes". I asked to which one. She went ballistic. Called me stupid mom multiple times. It is so hard to remain patient and deal with her when she is like this. Same thing happened at bedtime. The 9 year old inside of me wants to call her stupid back. I really have to bite my tongue.
