"look at me, I'm in a nutshell!"
This is a fairly good approximation of my whole entire day yesterday...
Me: Stop doing that or you're going straight into your room for time out.
Child in trouble (Elizabeth): But I don't want a time out.
Me: That's sort of the point.
CIT (Elizabeth): ~now sobbing~ But I don't waaaaaaant a time ouuuuuuut!!!
Me: Then stop doing things that will get you put in a time out.
CIT (Elizabeth): ~suddenly fine~ But I don't want to.
Me: ~reaching for giant bottle of alcohol~ Lord save me today, save me from killing this child.
CIT (Elizabeth): You have a big butt!
