1. Becca was mad at me for taking something away from her tonight. I pulled her into my lap to give her a kiss and told her 'You're snuggly and I love you.' She pulls away and says 'I NOT snuggly! I NOT love you anymore!' I forced myself to act hurt and not burst out laughing, LOL. (Becca is 6.)
2. I've noticed Becca 'sneaking' around the kitchen. Edging along a wall or under the counter and then peaking out to see if anyone sees her about to make a snack. I was laughing and saying to Bill she looks like a little ninja. In the middle of saying 'I don't know where she could have gotten the idea from' - ping - lightbulb moment. At school Becca has started wanting to walk to her 1st grade class by herself ("No Mommy! Not you!") I want to encourage her independence, but no way can I trust her on her own yet. So I follow behind her, peeking around walls and corners. Guess I'm not as subtle as I thought!!
