Yesterday she was mad at me because I asked her to try and go potty and she glared at me with little furrowed brows and pointed in the other room saying "NO! Go cook dinner!" Every once in a while I think about dogs versus kids. In this instance, I think oh yeah, a dog could never say that so they get a point. Later that day though, I was in the shower and realized I'd left my new exfoliating towel in a bag in my room. I called to Mae while I was showering and asked her to bring me the orange bag hanging on my makeup drawer in my bedroom. I thought yeah, she's not going to understand, I'll have to get out, then suddenly a little hand slips in the shower curtain with an orange bag. Then I realized what I needed was actually in a yellow bag in my room. I asked her if she could find the yellow bag in my room. Seconds later she brings me the yellow one. I said thank you and she said "you're welcome, mommy". So I think she gets two points for that. Also, I love that she doesn't poop in my yard, that's another point.
We are home alone all day now and that's really fun sometimes, and sometimes it's really boring being winter and we drive each other crazy because we love to go, and we love to be social. She used to just scribble but in the last two or three weeks she's suddenly figured out how to draw representational things. She likes drawing people, spiders, monsters, and owls. She also loves stealing my camera and taking pictures. I love seeing things from her little perspective. Nothing is better than when she says I love you, hugs, and kisses you out of the blue, and tells me I'm a good girl. Ugh that kid is the best (even when she's sassy).
