From the Button Chronicles...

B: I want to do something fun, Mommy. I want to do something fun.

M: Ok, why don't you go do something then?

B: But I want to do something fun! (repeated 5 times)

M: You know what, I want to do something fun too, but instead I'm making supper. Why don't you go and play? You can be a kid!

B: But that's not fun! I want to do something fun!!!

Mom here. Put some ideas, crazy or great on some slips of paper and put them in a jar, box, basket or container. I do have 3 joy buckets here, one of which is yours. Anyway, if the subject arises again, just tell her you have a jar of ideas and she or you can pick one and that will be her "fun" activity. She'll have fun just not taking your suggestions or explanations verbally.

Its called "her rut"... it takes a derailment to get her off it.
