Last night my two oldest were watching "James and the Giant Peach." There is a character on there they were arguing about. Myah insisted that it was a caterpillar, but Brett said he was certain it was NOT a caterpillar, but something else. He followed that with "I don't know the name of it, but I know it is NOT a caterpillar." I listened in the kitchen while cooking dinner at this whole exchange between them. Finally they called me into it. I looked, and I agreed with Brett, it was not a caterpillar.
About twenty minutes later, it was revealed that this character was actually a centipede. Brett of course relished in the fact that he was right. That is when the attitude came out of Myah.
Brett: See I was right!
Myah: No you were not right! You didn't know what it was.
Brett: Myah, I told you it wasn't a caterpillar, and it wasn't.
Myah: It was a centipede and you didn't know what it was, so you were wrong! (don't you love this logic...)
This is when I interrupted. I explained Brett was indeed right. Myah's attitude still didn't diminish any. About five minutes later she came up to me in the kitchen and here were her exact words:
Myah: Oh A.K.A. mom...I don't have anything in my folder.
I lost it. I started laughing roaring with laughter. I then explained the difference between A.K.A. and F.Y.I. to Myah, so she didn't repeat this faux pa to anyone else.
