She keeps growing up!
I have never known anyone with the sharp logic and reasoning of the little one. I am truly in awe of the way she thinks (and the speed at which she does it)
Yesterday I stopped by McDonalds on the way back from B&Q to pick up an ice cream for the little one and the hubby. I decided to try their new berry smoothie (very nice and not too sweet)
Back home, I was in the kitchen cooking dinner and when I came through to the lounge I caught the little one finishing off my smoothie. I was really cross. You know how you get your mouth ready for that last bit? And she finished it.
I had a rant at her.
I explained it was the last bit and that it was mean of her to finish it. I pointed out that I share everything with her so she doesn’t need to steal. I pointed out that it’s crazy to sneakily steal the last bit when all she has to is ask and she knows I will always share my stuff with her.
She got mad (she doesn’t like being told off)
“If you will always say yes when I ask, then what’s the point of asking!” she yelled back at me.
You know how your head is really impressed while your face and voice has to keep the parent role? That!
She still does kid stuff of course.
In the car yesterday she said
“Mum, you know lol dimensions? Why is it lol?”
It took me a moment but then I remembered the day before she had watched 101 Dalmatians! It makes sense really doesn’t it?
