normal or nosey and controlling?
i dont know if she's doing it more than she used to or if i've just lost my patience with it but Gigi's tendency to be nosey has me at my whit's end. maybe she's got a case of the terrible 6's. i can't so much as move w/out being questioned, and no that's not an exaggeration. even if she's in another room if she hears me move from say the living room to the kitchen she's on top of me, demanding to know what i'm doing.
my husband and i cant have a conversation AT ALL. if she so much as hears a proper noun (ex, "i talked to Sarah today and she") Gigi will butt in "who me?" she is constantly half hearing things that have nothing to do with her at all, construing them into her own narrative then flipping out. this moring she heard us talking about my husband's schedule, and he said something about having to be at back at work on thursday and she started whining and yelling about him not taking our thanksgiving vaction with us, when he said nothing of the sort.
worst of all, for me, is the obession with precise time. if i tell her dinner with be ready in a few minutes, she wants to know how many and will then go SET HER TIMER and put it in the kitchen. even if you take her timer, she sits on the clock. if you tell her she can have a snack at a certain time, she checks the clock every few minutes and reports the time to you. we've actually had to tell her "if you check the clock one more time you dont get X". if you say to her "in a little while" she will then assign you an amount of time. "okay, we'll x in an hour." and it's not just the clock, she has a calander she is obsessed with. we have had entire days RUINED b/c she would insist that it was saturday when it was sunday. even if you ignored her she would still insist. she was once sent to her room for two hours for arguing w/us about this only to come out and still insist we were wrong.
we have tried explaining it to her, we have been positive we have been negative but no matter what we do she has this need to know even the slightest detail at all times and more troubling, her tendency to want to control it.
