I love how my girls both know their own mind. They know what they want and how to get it. I love most of all how they think and work things out. My eldest has just discovered the word why? or more to the point its use. Following conversation in the car:
Daughter : 'What's that Mummy?'
Me : 'The Sun darling'
Daughter : 'No Mummy its the Moon'
Me : 'No Darling the moon is at night time and its daytime now'
Daughter : 'Why?'
Me : 'Because its not nighttime'
Daughter : 'Why?'
This conversation proceeded for a good 30 mins. She has also learnt the word because and its use particularly if I ask her 'Why?'. I love how at 2 she has her own mind and opinions and knows how to express them.
My youngest is also developing her own mind. She has never liked the car, it doesn't matter which car, whose driving or what car seat. She is happy to sit in the car seat outside the car but not in the car. Today she decided to make her self into a very stiff star shape so as to make it near impossible to get her in the seat.
During our trip round the supermarket she decided to 'sample' all my food items. I got a bit worried when I kept seeing the same person with a brush, then realised she was a member of staff following us round clearing up the mess my youngest was leaving behind, I paid for everything she sampled.
Upon our return home my youngest decided to empty all the toys out of all the toy boxes
She also decided that pulling up to standing is no longer good enough and now has to climb up everything, as she demonstrated by climbing into her sisters bed
Her sense of adventure really is growing and I love that she is exploring the world around her. I really love how my girls are developing their own minds and starting to think more for themselves.
This day I love my own mind.
