When Is A Quirk A Mood Disorder?

I know some of you think I exaggerate Aidan's "quirks". I don't. Just nibble on this little example of his absurd ridiculiousness.

Last night Mr was changing some light bulbs around the house. We decided to take a 3 way bulb out of a living room lamp so we were gonna switch it out with a bulb from a lamp that Aidan has in his room. So he goes up into Aidan's room and when he comes down he's grumbling about Aidan being a jerk. He said Aidan is all pissed off because he didn't want to switch bulbs and blah blah blah. I just rolled my eyes and forgot about it.

A few hours later we headed up to bed and at the top of the stairs I just lost it. Aidan had taken the light bulb out of the lamp and thrown it in the hall, unplugged the lamp and moved the whole lamp out there and locked his bedroom door. I thought Mr's head might possibly explode. And I almost choked to death laughing so hard.

What kind of damn 4 year old gets pissy over what light bulb is in his lamp?

HAHAHAHAHAH! That's awesome. It sounds like my 3 and 1/2 year old. She's really finicky like that. Your kids crack me up.

Nice work, Aidan. You tell 'em what kind of bulb you want. ;)

Wait! Wait! I know this answer! Because I have one who gets pissy over which juice cup he uses and if his sister can use one with even the same colors on it. And don't get me started on shoes, lightbulbs or laundry baskets (even though they are all exactly the same).

Apparently yours is!! Wow, guess he got his big boy briefs in a wad over all that! Maybe its the move and seeing Nana & Opas house in shambles that has caused the outrage! I'm sticking with that excuse myself!

I don't know if it's the name, but my four year old named Aidan would totally do the same thing. He is the king of drama and unreasonable requests.
