Frustration

The girls are on this kick.  They will beg me for something, usually apple juice or milk, and when I offer it to them they refuse it!  It's driving. me. NUTS!  Today, Kayley saw a box of cereal bars on the counter.  She asked for one.  I already had one open that I had offered Olivia earlier, so I grabbed it and offered it to her.  "No!" she exclaimed, pointing at the box and doing her little pouty dance.
"It's the SAME THING," I tried to explain.  But she kept demanding one from the box.  Grrr...
I just threw the unwrapped one on the floor and walked away.  A few minutes later I noticed her eating it.  Sigh.  And heaven forbid if juice or milk isn't offered in the right cup!  They'll ask for juice or milk, I'll try to give them some but if it's in a different cup than usual they'll think it's something else (water) and refuse it.  "APPLE JUICE!", they'll scream.  "This IS apple juice", I'll expain.  "AAAAAPPLE JUUUUUUICE..." they'll retort, while pushing the apple juice away...
