Though she be but little, she is fierce.
~William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Have you ever seen a more determined walk? Obviously on a mission.
This quote is usually reserved for her Mama, but I’ve come to realize it’s very applicable to four-year-old Peanut as well.
Her response to my rhetorical question, Want to come here and let me brush your hair?
Peanut: Let me think about that. Hmmm, (pause) No.
Her exasperated response when I tell her I can’t do something right at that moment…sometimes accompanied with an eye roll: Just do it.
Seriously, I have no idea where she gets this stuff! 😉
When she is running too fast and falls, sprawling herself on the ground, on occasion she’s jumped up, hands in the air and announced, I’m okay, I’m okay!
Gone is the complacent toddler of a couple years ago. In her place is a one that has definite opinions, a sense of humor and who is very much her own woman…at four.
Four going on fourteen.
Right on schedule.
