Queen of the declarative sentence

"I don't like you daddy!"
Life with my 2-year-old means hearing this phrase almost hourly. I really have to laugh, because within minutes of saying it, Little sister can turn around with the longest eyelashes known to man and bat away all the hard feelings.
It's funny, because she doesn't say it to the Beautiful wife hardly at all. Big sister was the opposite. She and her mom had, and still have, some real knock down, drag out screaming fests.
But Big sister tends to be pretty good for me.
All bets, however, are off if Grandma is anywhere within hearing distance. Then, both sisters like only grandma and everyone else is chopped liver.
Grandma is the cure for all hate with those two.
Little sister has picked up a few other choice phrases as well:
"Fix my TV!" She says this every 15 minutes when Sponge Bob advertises or 30 minutes for Diego.
"I want my mommy (daddy)" she says this to whomever is trying to put her in the car. If it's me, she wants mommy, if it's mommy, she wants daddy. Frankly, I think she is just stalling because she hates being buckled in the car seat.
"I want to talk." This phrase come out whenver the phone rings and is repeated at increasing volumes until you give in. Imagine the confusion of the phone salesman when I hand the phone over to the babbler.
"Get back!" Big sister has this phrase screamed at her constantly because there is some sort of magnet in little sister's back that makes her sister want to push her on the ground, or pick her up.
And finally, "I want my milk!" She says this often, because she would drink milk from sunup to sundown if we'd let her and never eat a morsel of food. So she only gets milk when she gets up or goes to bed.

I'm not trying to be mean, but it definitely sounds like you have "control issues" with your kids. The declarative phrases your children are speaking come across as rude and demanding, especially when you mention your child's persistence to talk on the phone and increasing her voice volume until you "give in". You better take care of these issues now or you're going to be a complete doormat as soon as these girls become teenagers. It is possible to be a loving and gentle parent without being disrespected. Remember, you are raising future adults who will use what they've learned as children to get by in life, give them good tools now.
