favorite stuff

allison is definitely in the terrible twos. she seems to be at odds against zach 80% of the time and wants me to carry her 99% of the time. even if its just two feet - from the bathroom to her bedroom. always a whiny, crying, yelling of commands. it gets so old quickly, and its hard not to lose your cool with her.

But! There is the other 20% of the time when she is the sweetest, most polite person in our household. She knows her manners. And she knows that to get what she wants, all she has to do is use those manners on her parents. "Mommy, please can I please have some more marshmallows, please?" or just tonight at the dinner table it was, "Daddy, please can we please have some ice cream please?" And this was after I offered her some rice with vegetables and she replied, "no thanks! no thank you." in the sweetest sing-songy voice.

so there she sits, the last one at the dinner table, spooning her (what is now) ice cream soup....and she blurts out casually, "ice cream is my favorite stuff."
