But she's the one who is the most dependent and attached to me. When we go to the pool or park she can hardly play with other kids for worrying about where I am. I have to literally "practice" with her about meeting and talking to other kids when we're out. She's fine playing along beside of other kids but doesn't have to much interest in actually playing WITH them...unless I'm playing too. She's fine with her brother and sister, and occasionally she'll forget she's attached to me and let me sit on the sideline while she plays with a new friend she's made.
If she sees me pick up my bag and jacket at home she's the first to ask "are YOU GOING SOMEWHERE?!?!?) She's the one sitting on my bathroom counter top as I brush my teeth, pluck my brows
So I'd expect her to be the first one to be ready to listen and obey my every command, but then again she is the one who is most like me in most ways so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I should say that she didn't get the holding-a-grudge thing from me. That's all Scrooge's personality. I can't stay mad longer than 5 minutes...I mean really mad. If
All this to say that now i feel guilty for sneaking out of the house extra early for my couple-hours-away-to-have-time-for-myself day because I know right about now she's roaming around all the rooms looking for me (and probably fuming at the ears) plotting her revenge on me for this over stepping of my boundaries. :)
just kidding about that last part....partly
