You know how it happens...every now & then there are days when they just seem so much older & grown up than the day before. It just happens....overnight. We're having one of those days. Sadie is getting to be such a big girl.
She likes to color these days on plain paper. She knows exactly what she's drawing too. A car, a helicopter, a scary monster, a snake. (sounds like all boy stuff, can you tell she draws with her daddy a lot)
While we were driving in the car this morning we had this conversation:
Sadie: "Mom, where are we going?"
Me: "To the doctor's office"
Sadie: "I want to see fireworks
Me: "Well, there aren't any fireworks right now. We have to wait until the summer time, when it gets really warm outside."
Sadie: "Oh, the fireworks are sleeping. The purple fireworks are sleeping. The yellow fireworks are sleeping. The white fireworks are sleeping. Me like them!"
Sure babe, whatever explanation makes more sense to you.
She had to get a shot at the doctor's office but stopped crying as soon as they asked if they could get her a sucker. Later while I was getting her all dressed again she said to me, "Mom, that made me cry." And we talked about how it hurt but only for a little bit & how it helps her not to get sick.
And sometimes....just sometimes...when I tell her no & then give her a reason, she thinks about it & then says "alright".
