Growing Up Too Fast, Big Kid edition

It’s good to know we’ve set a good foundation for the teenage years. The big kid has already learned the most important word in the teenager’s vocabulary (at least when dealing with parents) – “Whatever!”  Delivered with attitude, no less.

We had several instances the other day, where something wasn’t done his way, and he reacted with his usual “throw myself on the floor and cry” thing, but this time he’d yell “whatever!”first or say “whatever, Mama” before refusing to talk.

Another case of the “you don’t realize how much you say things, until the kids start saying them too” phenomenon.
