He wants a clothes peg on his finger.
But it's too tight so he wants it off.
Then he cries because he wants it on again. Then he cries because he doesn't.

Mine is crying because his fingernails are not as big as mine.

I had this problem with ds1 when he was a toddler. I ended up letting him do it even though I told him it would hurt! Then he was cross with me because it hurt! Weird aren't they!

Hysteria over not being able to fly

Sulks over the weather being too warm, but also not warm enough hmm

Batshit crazy over wanting to be IN the pool, but also ON THE SIDE.

DS1 loved ice-cream with a cone. But he loved holding it nearly as much as he loved eating it. But he hated it when it when it melted all over his hands. The terrible ambivalence ...... Aaargh!

(he literally wanted to have his ice-cream and eat it)

Mine is being U because he wants to stick a bendy wooden snake up my nose.

Mine wants her shoes on, can't do it, asks me to help and then gets annoyed when I help and throws the shoe at me.....this is a repeated cycle for about 15 minutes every time we need to leave the house

She also gets annoyed if I don't let her put her finger in my mouth, how u of me smile

I remember ds not wanting socks on but wanting shoes on that he wouldn't have on without socks.

Your DS is being VVU assuming he is under 5. If he is in his teens or older then he is being VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVU

I'm BU for not snipping the corners off all the little yoghurt sachets, one by one, and then letting DD2 squeeze them onto the patio.

I had one (now 18) that used to cry because the grass was too green!

Chunkymonkey79 Sat 27-Jun-15 19:13:55

Mine wants the lid taken off a pop bottle. But is upset because I have taken it off. So I put it back on again. Now appears to want it removing. Again. hmm

My 5 year old has hysterics yesterday because his new toothbrush flashes. Even when I explained to him that he didn't have to press it so it flashed it still wasn't good enough. <sigh>

My DS once had a major tantrum because I refused to punch him in the chest (apparently he wanted to show me how his superhero force field worked!)

missmargot Sat 27-Jun-15 19:24:35

Epic meltdown here because DS wanted to watch the Postman Pat theme tune on my iPad but didn't want me to touch the iPad in order to make it happen.

Toddlers are so unreasonable!
Good job they're cute...

DS cried today because I wouldn't let him drown his Toot Toot cars in the bath. What a meanie I am.

TattyDevine Sat 27-Jun-15 19:37:09

Mine wanted a fake nail on when he was about 3. He went on and on and on about it. So finally I gave in and glued on one of the tiny pinky ones on to his finger.

30 seconds later...I want it off now mummy.
