I Don’t Love You Anymore

Since we have crossed over into the fours, it seems that the boys are getting more and more independent and a little more sassy.   If there is something that they don’t like in terms of me telling them what needs to be done, or something they can’t do or have, they have come up with their own reply, and their defense  LOL.

When they are mad at me, their reply is “Mommy I don’t love you annnnyyyyy more!”  I either reply with that’s ok, I love you still, or “Maybe you want a new mommy?”   Their immediate reply is usually, I love you mommy!

I can remember awhile back when we were at the zoo and one of them was mad because I said no to something they wanted, and he said “I hate you!”  I thought to myself, “and so it begins.”  Was I like this as a four year old (probably!), and I am not even to their teenage years.  Being new to this parenting thing, I am almost certain that this is a phase.  And who ever coined it the terrible twos, needs to re-evaluate and take a look at the terrible fours, because I think I might go out of my mind!

We are at a phase in their development where they want to do everything include make the rules, so every day seems to be a power struggle.  By the time my husband gets home, I have to run and hide LOL.  This is four. So much fun.

    And it just keeps getting better. lol Their cuteness kinda wears off and they start getting very independent. I had 2 boys and 1 girl and trust me, at that age and older they think they know everything. Good Luck on the rest of your journey!

    LOL I remember when Lauren told me she didn’t love me anymore. I was crushed at first (she was 3) but now I just say “Well, I must be doing something right if she is angry” :p I actually blogged that I don’t like 3.5. Lauren will be 4 on Thursday and I’m already dreading 4. :( (I’m spreading some comment love today! You just happened to be online when I decided to spread some love. Hope you have a great day!)

  3. My son just turned three in December, and his new rule? No hugs at bedtime… only kisses. Then this morning, he announced that I couldn’t have kisses in the morning, only hugs. Wow!

  5. oh no!! and this is what I have to look forward to. :( My daughter will be 4 years old in June. I am not looking forward to this phase or the “WHY” phase. So far she isnt’ asking why all the time yet. Yet. YIKES the hard times of being a parent

  6. We had the same adventures with the age 4 and they continue still now with the age 5! what fun adventures we both are having.
