Ridiculous Conversations with Two Year Olds: Understanding Sarcasm

Me: M, honey, please put your shoes on.
M: <turns away, ignores me>
Me: M, did you hear me? If you want to go to the playground, you need to put your shoes on.
M: <ignores me>
Me: Do you want to go to the playground, M?
M: No.
Me: Ok, we can play in the backyard then.
M: <whining> I wanna go playground!
Me: Well then, put your shoes on, sweetie.
M: <Ignores me for 2 minutes, then starts whining again> Mommy, I wanna go playground!! I wanna go, Mommy. Can we go?
Me: Yes, sweetie, but you need to put your shoes on! Come on. Mommy's waiting for you.
M: <walks into the kitchen> I need a princess vitamin, Mommy! Can I have princess vitamin? I need a princess vitamin. I need it!
Me: And I need a Valium.
M: <disapproving look> You don't need a Valium, Mommy. Noooo. But I can have princess vitamin! You want one too?
