    Current mood: annoyed
    Current music:*My* shows, dammit

    Attitude.
    Disney is about to get a rather pissed off letter from me. In the midst of their programming for preschoolers is a show called "Rolie Polie Olie", and it appears to be the source of a bunch of attitude that I've seen recently. So far, she's acquired the following phrases from it:

    "Oh, maaaan!" (when being told to do something she doesn't want to do)
    "Allll riiiight..." (when it's clear I'm not bending)
    and today "It's not fair". (This when I told her she could have the computer after I finished checking mail.)

    Then we had the Lego-throwing incident. I'm not sure where she got that, but I saw her hurl several pieces when she was frustrated with a collapsing structure (she has yet to figure out building stability.) The Legos were promptly put away on top of the fridge, and did she *HOWL*. I told her that she could do without them for 10 minutes, hugged her, and put her on the Daddy Chair. She's stopped crying already, and she has 6 more minutes to deal without them.

Be happy it's just those phrases! Mine has been watching "Spongebob" and she has become a bit more aggressive since she started that. I've been trying to limit that show lately.

But, even after bitching about the cartoons she watches, she definitely gets her worst phrases from me. "Dammit mommy, shut up." is her favorite, right after I tell her not to call her sister a "fucker." Yes, my child is the spawn of Satan, and it's all my fault! And when she drops something or things don't go quite her way it's "Well, shit."

Hazel's pretty much figured out that certain things on cartoons are "only for bad guys." (hitting, karate moves, etc.) I avoid cartoons that I can't stomach myself, so she hasn't been exposed to SpongeBob much. I'm good about watching my language around her, but I have to laugh when I hear her parrot certain things. My favorite currently is when I'm doing something she's not happy about me doing (like washing her hair), she'll say "That's enooouuugh."
