New L’ism today. Earlier, her father had asked her to do something and in true 5 year old fashion, she was trying to find ways to not do it. After a couple back and forths, she said in a huff, “Daddy. You are SO oppressing me.” and stormed off to her room. And of course being the dork that I am it makes me think of Monty Python. It also reminds me of when I was a little girl and wasn’t allowed to say the word hate. I remember getting really angry one day and yelling, “I dislike you immensely!” Heh.
