The other day I was getting Ellie dressed and she, of course, was fighting it. Here is how the conversation played out.
Me: Come on Ellie, you are too big to put up a fuss everytime we get dressed.
Ellie: I not big. I little.
Me: (realizing she is right), Ok, you're right. You are little. But you still need to get dressed without a fight.
Ellie: Mommy, I want to stay little forever. I don't want to be growed up.
Oh she is so smart. I hope she always feels this way. Now I just need to remember that she is little. And deserves to act little from time to time.
