I'm guessing my parents think of times like this when I tell them of Peanut's new found independence while they laugh at me and say "It's pay back time." (Not that happened during a recent phone conversation with my dad).
Peanut has begun to assert herself as an independent little being with Opinions. Recently, those Opinions had to do with what shoes she wanted to wear. The husband tried to put her new pink shoes on her but she wanted nothing to do with them. She repeatedly shoved the pink shoes aside and thrust her brown shoes at the husband.
She then wanted to buckle herself into the car seat with no help from Daddy.
The other night when I asked if she wanted a bath, she took off for the steps. When I tried to swoop her up, she brushed me aside and climbed up the stairs herself. She does this also when we are leaving the babysitter's. She doesn't want to be carried out. She will walk on her own, thank you very much.
It's funny to see her act like this. She's so little yet she thinks she's so grown up already. It does give me a little concern what our future might hold if she's already acting like this ...
What does your little one insist on doing independently?
