Sometimes when we do something that meets with Maddie’s disapproval, she’ll tell us that she’s “bad to us.” We know that she means either she’s mad at us, or that we’ve been bad to her. We just aren’t sure which, exactly, she means.
Today, as we were driving around, and I wouldn’t stop singing along with this Hercules song, I Won’t Say (I’m In Love), even when she yelled for me to stop, she told me that she was bad to me. I was too busy singing to let that bother me. Then Maddie proceeded to calmly explain what the repercussions were.
I’m not bad to Mommy. (Points to her mother.)
I’m not bad to Baby. (Points to her brother.)
I’m not bad to Maddie. (Points to herself.)
(Furiously) I’m bad to you, Daddy!
It’s wrong, but Lillian and I looked at each other, and couldn’t stop from laughing.
