Big and Little

Alice has been arguing with us about whether she is “big” or “little” as this changes whenever it’s convenient for her. Her default state is “little” as in “I [too] little to put on my underwear” although I have been yelled at for helping with her underwear a time or too because she was big then. But not now —

Dad: You can go potty by yourself.

Alice: No. I little.

Dad: I thought you were big.

Alice: No, I little. Trust me.

I miss the days when my boys thought that they were too little to do something on their own. Now they seem to think they can do EVERYTHING on their own, with no help from dear old mom. :(

And do they say “I’m big — trust me”?

I like that “trust me part”. She’s getting in practice for a few years down the road.
