A preview of what's to come?

We were in the car on the way to watch my friend Layla preform a belly dance for the class she's taking (moral support and all), by the way... she kicked ar$e, and I'm trying to make sure that WonderKid doesn't fall asleep before we get there. You all know she can sleep anywhere (wonder who she gets that from?). So I keep eyeing her in the rear view and talking to her. At one point I catch her eye in the rear view, she just looks at me and tries to ROLL HER EYES AT ME!! She really only looked up, but I knew what she was going for. I basically told her, "Oh no you didn't...," to which she replies, "I'm not to be disturbed." Ummm, since when did I raise a royal (and I'm not talking about those ones in the castles)? Then at the performance she got irritated at me and lightly knocked me in the chin, I over dramatically gasped and she starts going, "I'm sorry, I'm sorry" over and over. So I start to talk to her about it, like...we don't hit, yada yada yada. She sticks both her hands, plams out, in front of her face and just keep saying the sorry thing over and over. So she doesn't have to hear what I'm saying.
I'm beginning to not know what to do with her. Ever since Mr.Wonder left, her attitude has increased ten fold. I'm scared that this is going to be the rest of my life. Dealing with her attitude whenever he leaves. And what if it becomes the norm when he's home too? I'm at a loss. Where did my sweet little girl go?

Oh no! Greg was laughing histarically at the comment Ryelie made. It's like you want to laugh..but shouldn't. I would just crack down of the attitude now. Nip it before she gets older. Let her know it is unacceptable to talk to you and Eric like that. I honestly don't know if that what to do..since mine is only 19 months. BUT when I yell at her now, she makes a face at me! I am in for it too!!
