Eva is 3 years old. On any given day, she can be the devil. It usually happens only 3-7 days a week.
Today is a devil day. On a devil day, Eva will only request to do unreasonable things (like play outside in the snow in a swimsuit). Even if you offer her an alternative (play outside in the snow in a snowsuit), it isn't good enough and getting her to do anything is like trying to wrangle Jell-O.
I got her to preschool this morning so she could participate in the party. I think she had fun while she was there. When she saw me she reverted back to "normal". I wanted to take her picture in front of the tree. I figured I might as well take her picture with a mad face. Here was our conversation:
Me: Eva! Make a mad face!
Eva: (with a mad face) I don't want to make a mad face! I want to make a happy face!
Me: Okay. Make a happy face.
Eva: (with a scowl) This IS a happy face!
Me: Okay, then.
