Katie Jayne

on November 24, 2011

So, for those of you who know my daughter, you know she has a mind of her own.  I’ve been noticing this more and more the past few weeks.  Let me share a few examples:

Katie is stubborn.  Really stubborn.  For example, last weekend we went to Sam’s for lunch.  Let me clarify, we didn’t buy lunch at Sam’s, no, we go most Saturdays to eat samples for lunch.  I know, we’re super cheap, but that’s another post…  Anyway, it was the holiday showcase so there were lots of samples, really good ones, so I would get one for James and usually I would get one for me and Katie to share.  Because she’s two, and can’t really feed herself hot food while sitting in a cart and not at a table.  So I would get a bite ready for her to eat and she would flat out refuse to eat it, because I was feeding it to her.  She wanted to do it herself, she wanted to do it herself so badly that she would rather not eat than eat it from me.  I don’t know where she gets that…

She also knows full well when she’s getting out of line.  In fact, she’ll discipline herself, more often than I do actually.  If she does something she knows is naughty, she’ll give herself a swat and cry.  It’s kind of humorous to watch.  Today, even, she hit Shawn and I told her not to hit and that was the end of it for me.  Not for her though, she put herself in the corner and started to cry a little.  If I hadn’t noticed and told her she could come back out, who knows how long she would have stayed in time out.  I’m glad she realizes when she’s been naughty, but man it’s hard not to laugh when she “punishes” herself.

Katie is a free spirit, and while it can be frustrating at times, it’s actually something I love about her.  I mean, really, who can not love this little lady?

Or this one

Or especially this one – love you Katie!
