Life with Viv

Viv, is always asking me to go and get her things (toys, dolls, shoes..etc.) when she is perfectly able to go and get them herself. Time and time again my response is "Viv you can get it. You are a big girl and don't need my help for that" Sidenote- If I felt it was something important, something she couldn't reach or could get hurt doing I would totally help her. Come on, I am not that lazy.

So... I was folding laundry. Knee deep in towels. The phone rang. Viv was sitting on the couch looking through her Hi-5 magazine. (Viv's equivalent to my Us Magazine.) I asked her to hand me the phone that was next to her on the coffee table. She put her magazine down, looked me dead in the eye and said with all seriousness "Mommy. You can get it. You are a big girl and you don't need my help with that" and went back to looking at her magazine.

All I could do is smile and laugh.
