Oh Callie girl. This sweet little girl has been keeping us hopping lately. She has learned two new tricks that have been making me crazy! The first trick is learning how to do zippers. Here's why this matters - because now she can unzip her diaper bag or my purse, pull out my wallet along with everything else in there (credit cards, receipts, money, etc). Sigh. The second trick is how to open doorknobs. This means that no longer does a closed door keep her OUT! For example, we keep the office door closed. But lately, I have found her in there either sitting at the computer desk, or - even better - up ON TOP of the washing machine (the laundry room is behind the office) poised and ready to do something - I don't know what - throw things, eat laundry detergent, who knows!
She's an awfully sweet girl, with quite a BIG personality, but she is keeping us on our toes (and on our KNEES lately). The nursery workers told me on Sunday that she's been a bit aggressive in her Sunday School class lately (she scratched some sweet girl last week), so they're going to be trying some different tactics with her. Poor girl - her big brothers have ruined her. All she knows is how to defend her territory and stand up for herself! So we're working on GENTLE hands!! :)
