Little you may know, but Sophia, is a monotheist. It just happens to be that her God is none other than Elmo. She adores Sesame Street and we have begun to use it as a bit of a crutch. Sophia has reached terrible two’s in her attitude but not in age. I don’t particularly want to wrestle or argue with her but things need to get done, dinners eaten, things put back in place, teeth brushed, etc., So here we are:
Me: Sophia, it’s dinner time.
Me: [after nap, trying to give her a snack] How about some apple sauce?
Sophia: No! RAISIIIIIIIIINS!
Me: Raisins after snack.
Me: We don’t scream at home. Elmo won’t come and visit us if we scream.
Anyone else have a similar situation? What to do?!
