I wish I could take a child development class or something before this baby comes out. I feel like I just don't understand kids, and their selfish illogical minds, and it makes me very impatient with them. Why do you need the toy that other kid has, and why do you think you can just snatch it from him? And why are you perfectly engrossed in whatever toy you're playing with, until I mention some other toy out loud to try and stop little Johnny from stealing little Susie's doll... and suddenly you RUN OVER because the toy I mentioned is the only toy you really wanted to play with all along and you must get there before little Johnny? And why doesn't this work when I want it to... Like when I invite someone to sit quietly in a chair, it doesn't suddenly occur to all the other 2 year olds that that's what they wanted to do all along. I vaguely remember learning about all this in my BYU Human Development class from years and years ago, but I don't really remember one little bit of what I learned, and it makes toddlers a foreign and frustrating species to me. Just stop being a brat!! What is so hard about that??
