… Makes me feel like we are doing an alright job with her.
Or maybe I give myself, ourselves, too much credit. Maybe it is ALL her. Maybe it is the stage she is at; maybe it’s the understanding that comes with growth; maybe even it’s all her class activities from kinder and swimming that have her responding and speaking with such care, eloquence, and love.
1. “Mama… can me please have teddy bear biscuit?”
When I respond yes, she asks quietly
“Is that good manners?”
Oh darling. Yes yes and MORE yes.
2. When we are heading into the shops quickly.
“Now honey, we are only going in and out, THAT’S IT.”
“Ok Mummy, me listen to you all day, I promise.”
3. When I am mad and frustrated, she grabs a hold of me.
“Mummy… look at me. Calm down, ok? Everything be alright.”
Oh, it is laughable and oh-so-cute.
4. I am driving.
“Oh, that person is driving like a f*&king idiot!”
“Mama don’t say that word. That very bad word!”
:):):) Peeps, she is only 4… and she already knows better than me!
