Unhappy Amy and daddy had a fight

Amy wanted to wear a dress to day-care / school today. She and DH have worked out a routine of alternating pants days with skirt days. Today was supposed to be a skirt day. She doesn't really have any winter dresses. The only thing she has that is close to warm enough is dirty.

DH and I discussed it, because it is fairly warm today. The only clean dress she has is a sun-dress. It's not that warm. DH and I started out quite calmly, but when DD said she doesn't love DH and she wants a new daddy because he doesn't love her either, he got a little upset. She ended up in tears because DH picked out clothes for her. He told her she was allowed to substitute the shirt, but that she couldn't wear a dress today. We will wash her dress today and she can wear it tomorrow. But, that messes up the pattern; tomorrow is a pants day.

She finally calmed down and she and I talked about it. She agreed to wear a skirt today and that mommy and daddy love her no matter what. She even apologised to DH. Everybody seems to be friends again. She tends to argue and fight with DH more than me. I think it's because he's very sensitive to her saying she doesn't love him. I seem to be better able to stay calm when she says it to me, but it upsets him (even when she says it to me). Five minutes later, she'll say she wants 100 mommies and daddies just like us because she loves us so much.

wow - that's rough.
Sarah doesn't say that stuff really she doesn't try to negotiate or become stubborn either. My problem is Sarah is sneaky. She'll tell you okay and then turn around when you're not looking and change her clothes or sneak whatever it is she wanted
Andrew, he does the temper tantrum type stuff and attempts to negotiate like Amy...
I don't know which is worse.
