Sarcasm, on a 4 year old?

I was sitting in a local ice cream shop, enjoying a treat and casually watching the two little girls at the table next to us enjoying their ice cream cones. About two-thirds of the way through her ice cream, the older of the two, who may have been four, got this panicked look on her face and said, “Mommy, I have to go to the bathroom….really bad. I don’t know if I can make it.” The mom, who was trying to enjoy her sundae, got up with this frustrated look on her face and said, really sarcastically, “well, why didn’t you wait till the last minute?” As the little girl was pee-pee dancing her way toward the bathroom, I heard her say, “I did!”

Well mom, you asked.
