Let's Go To The Beach
Last week the weather was really cold for California. When I say really cold I mean around 45 degrees. Us Californians wear scarfs and gloves and refuse to leave the house when the weather gets that frigid. As I have said before, we are a bunch of complaining wimps.

Paige has had enough of this cold weather and has insisted upon wearing a swim suit every day for he past week. I get her dressed in warm clothing, turn around, and off she has gone to change into her beach attire.

I tried to explain that it was the wrong season for the beach. There was no reasoning with her.

She was going to the beach.

No, I said, mommy is NOT driving you to the beach.

To which she replied "It OK mom, I take the bus".

Thankfully, after a while, playing with her horses sounded more fun than the beach.

I found her in the bathtub this morning swimming in her bathing suit.
Knowing my stubborn little girl we will be wearing gloves and scarves in July.
She is definitely a girl that does not like to take NO for an answer.
It's a good thing she is soo cute. God's protection against a frustrated parent no doubt.

Well I always tell people that my job as a parent is to raise a child that will become independent.

Sounds like you already reached your goal!

And you keep these pictures on hand so that when she comes complaining about how stubborn her own offspring are.....you can say, "Let me show you something."

I mean, why go through all this frustration if there is no benefit down the road? :)
