AIBU From the POV of a year old

Prompted by my 5 year old having a meltdown because I wouldn't let her have sweets at bed time. Said sweets were given to her by a Birthday child at school today, but she forgot about them until bed time.
Apparently I am BVU not to let her have them.

My 7 month old thinks I'm very unreasonable not to let her lie in the cat's bed!

ExtraWickedDevil Tue 21-Oct-14 22:05:39

But Pointless what does the cat think?

My 7m old boy think I'm being unreasonable not letting him throw the catfood bowl round the house and then eat the catfood. He keeps trying though.

I don't have a tail, like the cat does. It's sooooo unfair angry

I have tried stomping my feet and shouting.
I have tried crying.
I have tried asking very very nicely, and making my nice smile face.
I have tried looking in all of the cupboards in the house.
I have tried asking my nonna, and my papa.

I still don't have a tail sad I think my mamma is very very very unreasonable!

Lots of love, Baby Annun, aged nearly 18 months.

My 6 year old thinks I'm unreasonable as I won't let her eat and play with the party bags stuff.

My 2year old thinks I'm unreasonable as I won't let her sleep in my bed or wash her hands in the toilet and drink the water. I'm also being unreasonable as I have put a toilet lock on it.

Reason my 2year old does not sleep with me is because she spends all night trying to pick and lick my nose or stick her thumb in my mouth as she sucks the other.

ExtraWickedDevil Tue 21-Oct-14 22:17:32

Just realised I miss typed the thread title grin. It seems I am also unreasonable for not allowing her to have the sweets at breakfast either.

We have dogs who think we are very unreasonable to close the cupboard door after they have been fed...

I am not allowed to sleep in my mummy or daddy's bed either! But it's because I like sticking my fingers in their eyes to see if they are really sleeping. Daddy said that Enough Was Enough after he had to go to hospital and get a plaster put on his eye. I think he is BU.

And as for my mummy. She has grown a really big tummy and keeps trying to tell me there are babies inside it. I don't believe her, and it's just not funny any more. I think she thinks that I'm silly. Of course there can't be babies inside of her!

Miss Lopez
You are not at all unreasonable. How else were you supposed to know daddy was sleeping. And you are quite right to be suspicious about the whole babies in tummy malarkey. Next they will try to tell you it's where you came from.

The cat just thinks we are unreasonable to have had a baby in the first place!

my almost 2 year old thinks I am BVU for not letting him eat books

ExtraWickedDevil Wed 22-Oct-14 09:31:08

I think cats think most human behaviour and all dog behaviour is vair unreasonable.

So today both dogs would like to petition that I am being very unreasonable to not let them lie on the sofa.

And DD thinks that it's very unreasonable that she has to stop playing and get to school on time.

My mum insists that she be allowed to sit down, unpestered, every so often. I think this is very unreasonable. I have decided that I want a fifth course (the dinner, pudding, fruit, & cheese courses were not sufficiently filling), and it is not my fault that she "just sat down." In fact, she is forever complaining about my timing, when I am clearly the reasonable one with good timing.

What do you think?

GloopyGhoul Wed 22-Oct-14 10:27:37

upduffed SO unreasonable. Books are clearly designed for child consumption.

upduffedsecret Wed 22-Oct-14 10:34:47

I wouldn't object quite as much if he stuck to his own books! (Ok, I would really)

WeirdCatLady Wed 22-Oct-14 11:32:00

Dear minighoul, you are so nbu. My mother keeps complaining that I chose the moment she has sat down to announce that I need to go outside for a wee. She thinks I'm being annoying as I watch her moving around the house and then wait until she sits down. She also moans at me lying on the floor right where her feet should be.
You can't win with some folks.
Love, weirddog
P.s. When she gets annoyed with me I just fart. Real smelly farts. Deep down I know she loves that. Maybe try that approach yourself?

BonjourMinou Wed 22-Oct-14 12:12:45

My 1 year old thinks I am being unreasonable for not letting her pull all the wipes out of the packet, one by one. Is a very satisfying thing to do.

She also thinks I should hang around topless all day so she can feed whenever she fancies it. I am being unreasonable to have called a halt to all that when she started biting me!

RightyTightyLeftyLoosey Wed 22-Oct-14 12:22:20

AIBU? Mummy took the lovely big pointy stick I found in the garden and said I couldn't wave it around in the kitchen.
It makes such a lovely swooshy sound, with the added bonus that I might knock something on the floor and then I can feast on the contents.
This is not fair! I want my stick of doom!

love MiniRighty

It's a cutted up pear thread!

No pear, want it cutted up..... NOOOOOOO you broke my pear !

ExtraWickedDevil Wed 22-Oct-14 13:04:15

Mini Devil Here
Enough back chat from mother. Why cant I shout MUUUMMMMM at the top of my voice when I want her to look at the 989th picture I have drawn today? Of course it is an emergency.

CuttedUpPear Wed 22-Oct-14 13:06:59

You called ?


Mammanat222 Wed 22-Oct-14 13:13:33

Love cutted up pear... 'tis the only way my 2 year old DS eats it, thankfully he doesn't get upset that I break his fruit grin

He does however think I am very unreasonable not to let him kick the cat. He says to me "kick Bambi" the cat is not called Bambi so it took me a while to figure out what he wanted to kick and cries when I ask him not to!

WeirdCatLady Wed 22-Oct-14 13:13:48

I want to go outside.
Why have you opened the door? I don't want to go outside.
Why are you sitting back gown? I want to go outside.
And repeat...

Love WeirdDog

This is a 2yr old, but.... "I don't want to sleep! Don't need it! Ever.... wassat? Yeah I dozed off earlier when you put me in the trailer for a 5 minute journey and had to wake me up for my dinner, but that was a whole hour ago, and see I had a sleep [for said 5 minutes] so I don't need one now!"
