Contrarian

Overheard today:

Tannis: Time for lunch, Ivy
Ivy: Why?

Now it wouldn't seem that this very short "conversation" would be worth posting, but it is truly a representative sample of Ivy's current mode. It's not just questioning authority, it's questioning everything. Including, say, the idea that it's time for lunch. Any idea originating somewhere other than her own brain is immediately rejected with a why, no, or maybe later. Wasn't this supposed to happen five or six years from now?

OMG, Zach does that too and it drives me crazy!

Put your jacket on. Why?
Go to the bathroom. Why?
Brush your teeth. Why?

And on, and on! I hope it's a short phase ;)

Speaking about Ivy, did she receive her package yet???

Jeremy said...

Why yes, she did, and has already enjoyed the book! Which reminds me that she asked me to send her your e-mail address so she could thank you properly...doh!

Heather said...

I look forward to her correspondence. :)
