Damn I wish I had video of this one because the entire event took about 15 seconds, zero to crazy.

We're driving down the road and Josie's in the back seat eating an apple. She was about done with it, telling us it was down to the seeds. Marc rolls down her window and says, "Hey it's an apple core, you can just throw it out the window." So she looks over, smiles, and chucks it out.

Then IMMEDIATELY we hear "MY APPLE! IT'S GONE! I WASN'T DONE WITH IT I WANTED IT!" and there's a full-on kicking screaming carseat breakdown happening and marc and I are looking at each other wondering what the hell just happened because...

1) Josie understands how gravity works, and what happens when things get thrown
2) We just suggested that she throw out her apple core, didn't order her to do it
3) Seemed like entirely her decision
4) WTF DID SHE THINK WOULD HAPPEN?!

We had a similar event the week before... I made her a little yarn doll and she was trying to pull the yarn out of it. I told her not to do that, it would ruin it, and she replied, "I want to rip it up!" So okay, I don't care, it took me five seconds to make and I basically just did it to get rid of yarn (I don't even know why I have yarn). Then she has this crying breakdown holding a mess of yarn in her hands because her doll is gone.

I don't know if all three-year-olds are completely insane, or just mine. I don't get it.

They are all this insane. I have witnessed many a scenario resembling this from my two friends who are under 4 yo.

They are like that. They may understand the words, but they do not completely understand all of the causality.

My smallest roommate is the same way. OMG. And she has lungs like a hurricane; I swear we can hear the windows rattle while she screams.

oh we had that same thing, well, not an apple but her balloon! We even warned her that it would fly away. sigh. she now has us driving with windows closed. Hope by summer rolls around she will forget the trauma caused!

Madness! But if I were her, I probably be just as mad I guess. They know theory but not the reality of their hypothesis they come up with!

All insane. The four year old terrorist over here is a nutcase too.

They're all like that. I think they don't REALLY understand cause and effect.

It is normal! Cause and effect and results and how things will make you feel emotionally are all hard concepts.

Children are crazy. I don't even have any, but I looked after a 1 1/2 year old this weekend. Very stressful. But then I found this blog and it all made sense: http://www.reasonsmysoniscrying.com/
