My DF keeps pretending to steal my nose. When I was a toddler I used to get really excited and steal it back. Now I'm 3 and 3/4 and I know my nose is stuck to my face so he can't steal it.
This morning he tried to steal it and I just looked at him, raised an eyebrow and told him, "It's still on my face. You can't steal noses."
My DF looked heartbroken. AIBU? My DF said I should play along in his 'fun' game.
I worry indulging parents spoils them. They need to learn how to live in the real world where nose stealing games are just silly.

YABU To have never fallen for such tomfoolery - even at 18 months when this was tried on me I gave the face and said 'no'.
I'm 5 soon and obviously know everything there is to know in world....sometimes though I indulge my DMs need to 'teach' me by pretending I can't read words I've read 3 million times before. Weirdly she doesn't appreciate this.

Thank you for bringing back a lovely memory...my toddler was playing steal the nose with her father. Apparently, getting wise to the game, she grabbed her nose back from him and popped it back on her face. The expression of self satisfaction was marvelous...fun times...
