Little Miss Independent wants to do everything Zoë-self.
~ I do it Zoë-self.~ (Pointing a finger at whomever offers to help) – I don’t need your help. I need my help.~~—~~
Zoë: Mommy, I need something.Me: What do you need, Zoë?Zoë: Um, um, I need… I need… um… Help me think, Mommy!
My mom is a big teaser and her grandchildren are not spared.
Zoë wanted to see the smiley faces on her potty training reward chart hanging on the bath room door (which I kept meaning to take down six months ago!). We would draw a smiley face for every time she was "successful" in using the potty and washing her hands.
The chart is about five feet off the ground. Zoë wanted my mom to carry her so that she could see.
PoPo: Can’t you see it from there?Zoë: No! I only two years old. I not five!
OF course, PoPo scooped her up so that she could count her smiley faces one by one.
