At the Target today Annie was looking at the Christmas trees & I was turned with my back to her as I looked at the ornaments, "Look at this one mom. Isn't it beautiful?" After about the 3rd one I stopped turing to look & just started saying "Uh-huh."
"Mom, can you even believe I am strong enough to shake this WHOLE tree?" I turned around REALLY fast! Sure enough...she was!
This comes one day after she broke a big glass ornament at Michael's, after I had told her to stop touching them 4 times. How do I know it was 4 times? Because when I asked her, "How many times did I tell you not to touch them?" She said, "Four."
In case you are wondering...they don't make you pay for the things your kids break at Michael's. And at Target when your kids break snow-filled water globes...they don't make you pay for those either.
