The pressure’s on when there’s a Big Girl (6-year-old L) watching you!
And despite Baba’s efforts, the smiles as you can see still go underneath. And she still hasn’t made up her mind whether she’s a leftie (like Mama) or a rightie (like her Baba).
The “look L is eating all her vegetables!” didn’t work, though. Amie has sharpened her logical thinking on the vegetable issue. Last week:
– You have to eat your vegetables if you want to grow and become a big girl.
– When I am a big girl, then I’ll eat my vegetables.
– Noooo, you won’t become a big girl if you don’t eat your vegetables [the speaking in emphases is contagious]
– [Thinks for a moment] Then I want to stay small.
