Is Crazy Hereditary?

I had the following exchange with Peawhistle the other day that was so typical, I decided I can't possibly not share it.

PW: (Loud obnoxious noises while I'm trying to talk to the Husband.)
Me: PW, if you're going to make those sounds, please go downstairs or up to your room to do it.
PW: No!
Me: Then stop making those sounds.
PW: NO!
Me: Fine. Downstairs you go.
PW: I SAID NO!!!!
Me: Go downstairs, please.
PW: NO! I SAID NO!
Me: Down...stairs.
Husband: PW, go downstairs!
PW: NO, NO, I SAID NO!
Me: FINE. Then go upstairs.
PW: NO! I WANT TO GO DOWNSTAIRS! I NEED TO GO DOWNSTAIRS! I SAID NOOOOOO!!!!
Me + Husband: Then go downstairs!!
PW: Okay.

It's like arguing with Bugs Bunny after he's suffered a head injury.

Is it normal for her to be crazy this early?

I was just telling Travis that I've given PW a timeout at my house before and the whole time she yelled, "No, I said No!" I could hear the whole exchange in my head. VERY Entertaining!

I swear it is like running in circles. Someday they'll learn.

Funny! And then not so funny! Why didn't someone tell us kids are crazy?

To assess the craziness of the apple, one must first survey from the tree from whence it came.

Bugs Bunny with a head injury...I just laughed Fresca out of my nose.

Then my work here is done, Holly.

My tree ain't crazy; the Husband's might be though.

It's comforting to know I'm not the only one running an asylum here.

Crazy is relative, right? I think my tree is completely normal, but have been informed that is some rare hybrid. Maybe you came from the same orchard:)
