Life under tyranny...
Some days I wish I had a camera constantly recording to document what I go through on a daily basis with this girl.
Typical car ride:
Diva: "I see a doggy!! I see two doggies!! Wook! Der day are!"
Me:"Oh yeah? Wow!"
Diva: (she is now screaming in her demonic, exorcist-worthy voice) "NOOOO.....SAY IT!! SAY, 'I SEE A DOGGY!' SAY IT MOMMY!"
*cowering with fright*
I repeat. She seems satisfied.
But no, it is not over.
Diva: "We're going to da park today! We're going to swing and pway in da sand!"
Me: "That's right we are going to play in the park!"
Exorcist: "NOOOOO, NO! SAY, 'WE ARE GOING TO DA PARK TODAY AND GOING TO SWING AND PWAY IN DA SAND!"
If I so much as alter the inflection in my voice or change one word I am consequently screamed at the rest of the way home. No joke.
This scene reoccurs over and over throughout the day. You would think that I would just learn to repeat everything before she starts screaming but it doesn't work that way. Sometimes I have to repeat, other times I must listen and then reply with her wording. Not mine.
I hope year 3 will have a better outlook for me.
Somebody help me. please. I need a safe haven. A shelter perhaps.
