"I Can Do Anything, You Can Do, Better"

Carley is our most determined child yet. She sees that Gavin and Kyra can wash their hands by themselves and of course thinks she can do the same. Last night after supper we obviously were not getting her cleaned up as quick as she would have liked, so she first used the step stool to pull herself up on the towel rack and stayed balanced on that while trying to wash her hands. When her Mom and Dad yelled at her for that, she decided to just use the potty chair for her step stool (even though the real step stool was a foot from her). Creative and determined! I am sure that someday I will find these qualities good in her but at the present time it just makes my job harder (more interesting, but harder). :-)
