Here's my frustration lately. When I ask Kellan to clean up his toys or tell him it's time to leave the park he responds, "No, just one more minute. One LONG minute."
When he first started saying that, I admit that I found it funny. This probably encouraged him to keep saying it. Now I can't ask him anything without him putting up his index finger and asking for "one long minute."
I know it's too much to expect a four year old to immediately comply with every request, but just once I'd like for him to say "Okay!" and snap to it. Why does everything require so much effort? Can you tell I'm having a moment here?
