The Girl Child

Whoever said that girls are easier than boys either never had girls or never had Clare. We've reached a new peak of independence. Tonight when I asked her to go get the green comb from my bathroom so that I could comb her hair, her brother got to it before she did and brought it to me. She squealed, whined, took it from him and RAN BACK TO MY BATHROOM WITH IT so that she could bring it from the bathroom. Later, when I picked out some socks from the pile of clean laundry in the middle of the hall, she squealed, "I DO IT!", took them from me, put them back in the pile, and retrieved them again on her own.

And to think that we're actually trying to potty train this child. There's a way to use this to our advantage, but I haven't figured it out yet.

I don't know if it will make you feel better or not, but Ty still does this kind of thing at 4.
