Lucy Jane. I don't know if it's the two in her, or the Lucy in her, but we just can't reason with this one. She always has something on her mind, and if what you're telling her is opposite, it's like you never said it. For example, this happened tonight at my house:
Lucy: "Daddy, so-and-so is a baby, and she screams all the time."
Nate: "Lucy, you're one to talk. You used to scream all the time, like a little cat."
Lucy: "Mommy said Milo was the one who screamed like a little cat."
Me: "Lucy, Mommy never said that."
Nate: "Lucy Jane. You can't tell something that's not true. That's called a lie. That's a lie that you said about Milo because Mommy never said that."
Blank stare from Lucy.
Nate: "Now, Lucy, what did I just say?"
Lucy: "You said, 'I'm the only one who's going to be screaming around here.'"
See what I mean?
Or how about this one.
Lucy: "Daddy, I like what the Torah said about Yahweh sending the hornets."
Nate: "You're right, Lucy. That's good to know that Yahweh will send the hornets to drive out the enemy."
Lucy: "Yeah, because hornets are like elephants."
