If I haven’t made it clear before, this girl is stubborn. If she wants to do something, she goes for it at all costs.
For instance, she no longer allows me to brush her teeth for her. She must do it herself. If I try to help her in any way she screeches. She clamps her mouth shut. She turns her head in protest.
Rather than fight her, though her rebellious streak worries me, I’ve decided to let her take full rein and do it herself. Nothing like a self-sufficient kid. Let’s just hope this practice doesn’t introduce her to the world of cavities.
The jammies she’s wearing is part of a Carter’s brand set that says, “Little Miss Independence.” Indeed.
