Charlotte has recently decided she wants to be a grown up. Every day she tells me she wants to be a grown up and lists the reasons why. The number one reason is that she wants to touch knives. She says she wants to hold them and touch them and cut things. Not concerning at all. She also wants to be a grown up because she wants to be bigger than me, she wants to drive a car and she wants to take a shower by herself. I told her she could take a shower by herself now and she said “well I wouldn’t wash anything.” And I said that is why you aren’t ready to be a grown up and she called me a “pain in the” which is what she always calls me when she is aggravated with my answers and she thinks it’s OK because she stops short of the word ass.
This morning when I was laying with her before we got up for the day I felt the baby moving and she was upset she couldn’t feel it, so she said she wants to be a grown up so she can have her own baby in her belly. I told her she should do A LOT OF THINGS before she gets a baby in her belly and she looked up at me and said “oh I know. I gotta touch knives first.”
