Day 1139 - Conversations with Emma
There are times when you wonder if the kids are beginning to think too highly of themselves. You want your child to have a healthy ego, but you certainly do not want them thinking they're any better than you. After all, who could be better than us?
At our new townhouse, the kitchen is pretty small so if there are more than a few people in it, you're either going to get bumped or sauteed. A few days ago, Lisa was in the kitchen preparing dinner and didn't see Emma next to her. Lisa bumped Emma over.
"Emma! I didn't see you there. I'm sorry," Lisa apologized.
Emma got up off the floor and said, "Mommy, you need to be careful because I am special."
Lisa did a slight double-take and asked, "Special? Why are you special, Emma?"
Emma made an expression of disbelief that belies her toddler age and said, "Because I am EXCITING!"
