My 5 year old daughter Hope Holloway seems to prove my husband Clayton and I wrong. We'd say things and she'd totally prove us wrong. One time on New Years Eve, I bought a cake. "Nice baking Mommy"! Hope told me. I told her I didn't bake it. "Well you tried". She said. I was in shock. Clayton and I laughed. She came back and said "Is there something you want to tell me? Something I should know"? She asked in a serious voice, like she was the parent. Claytong told her no. She said "Hmmm...... I'm watching you"? She signaled it too. You know the fingers to your eyes and back at someone. Also, we struggled to put Hope on time outs. She loves her room, its like Heaven. So we put her in the attic. "Appoligize if you want to come out. Or else your living here forever". I told her. Of course I didnt mean it. 'I guess I am living here forever. Might as well get comfy". Hope said. I was in great shock. I told her to think about it. "I'm not thinking, I'm not thinking, I'm not thinking". Hope said a variety of times. I came in later. "Have you thought about it"? I asked. "No, but I think I'm ready to come out:. She said skipping off. I cant really handle Hope well. Any advice?
