epic hissy fits

 

“You are the sunshine of my life. That’s why I’ll always be around. You are the apple of my eye. Forever you’ll stay in my heart.” (Stevie Wonder)

She’s adorable, and I love her. However I am not so fond of her epic hissy fits.

Me: “Lets go to the play cafe for lunch.”

Her: (flinging her head back in despair) “I don’t want to.”

Me: “Oh ok, would you rather stay at home? We could make cakes after lunch.”

Her: (tears pouring down her face) “I don’t want to.”

Me: “Right then, I understand that you’re sad, what would you like to do?”

Her: (now lying on the floor, on her stomach, face screwed up and tears flowing) “I want to do nothing.”

Me: (joining her on the floor) “Ok, then lets do nothing.”

I counted eight separate full blown epic hissy fits yesterday. I am considering campaigning for a government backed, emergency gin helpline.
