Guess She's Not Quite Getting the Concept of Sarcasm Yet

Nate: Okay, time to change your diaper.

Thalia: No!

Nate: Let me change it Thalia, you pooped.

Thalia: NO!

Nate: Oh Thalia, please let me change your smelly, stinky diaper filled with excrement. Please do me the courtesy of allowing me take it off your body and then wipe all that poop off of your butt and then please let me...

Thalia: Aw, don't cry, Daddy.

All a girl needs sometimes is a little groveling!

Well they do say that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit!

That's not sarcasm, that's basic reverse psychology (which actually works frighteningly well).

:O Someday she'll thank him -- both for changing the diaper and for helping her to learn about humor!

Lol...

I bet she learns the word "excrement", though, lol.

I think she knows exactly what she is doing.

My kids take everything quite literally too. But, hey, at least it worked!

Love it! I will have to remember this one for my darling Little Dude, once he can argue against the diaper change rather than the current wiggling until the diaper is on backwards or sideways.

Sarcasm is one of the first things my husband and I instill in our children. It comes before potty training, before reading, often before weaning, in fact.

"BY GOD YOU WILL KNOW THE TERM FACETIOUS, DAMMIT!"

*Ahem.*

Sorry.
