Miss M wants to do everything herself lately. She wants to the one to shut the bedroom and bathroom door. She wants to be the one to flip the light switch on or off. She wants to be the one to shut the fridge door while I’m making lunches, even if I am still getting things out. She wants to hold everything, her lunchbox, the keys, her jacket. She sees me put my hat on, she wants to put my hat on.
There is no more neatly spooning yogurt or applesauce in to her tiny mouth for her. Now she must do it herself, and she’s less than tidy. But it’s so fun to watch her work hard at mastering something new.
