So for the past few months Little Princess has been hitting the terrible 2's. She's just a year late (as I hear a lot of kids are). She has been terribly whiny and just bratty. But then the last week or two, by complete surprise she has been simply wonderful. She hasn't been fussy or whiny or snotty. She's been so willing to help with her little brother, help clean her room, eating her dinner and the biggest one was leaving grammy's house last night. Usually leaving grammy's house is a big chore that we dread on Sunday nights. But yesterday she just got her shoes, searched for her sweater, all without whining once. Lover Boy was the one who pointed out the most excellent behavior to me after we'd left. He was right, she was perfect while we were getting ready to leave.
Little Princess is full of funny sayings. Her latest is "of course". If I ask her to use the potty before we leave she says "of course I don't need to". That was just seems so funny, usually I hear "of course" when it's going to be used positively not with a negative term.
Today we went out with Grammy to a few stores and in the first one she asked for a treat. I really don't like to give her treats in the first store that we visit, but today she really was being so good that I would've given in, however I was on the phone with her daddy and didn't want to go wait in line because we were in the middle of an important conversation. She was so good and didn't cry and beg (like her normal behavior) and then according to my mom she just went and stood with Grammy in line and said "I can't have a treat, my mom said no and that's ok, I don't need one". What a little sweet heart!! I almost feel like I need to shake her and demand my daughter back, but I kinda like this clone with a much better attitude.
