We may be in trouble.
Gone are the days when I could tell Anna Marie whatever I wanted about bedtime or the times other things were happening.
Her Aunt Manda has purchased a set of flash cards, and she's learning to tell time.
Poor thing, though, she tried on two of our clocks last night, one in the living room and one in the dining room - but the added element of Roman numerals threw her off. Not to worry - we have a "normal" clock in the bathroom.
Now, when I tell her it's bed time, she can tell whether I'm trying to get her in a little early or not. She thinks her bedtime is 9 p.m., but what she doesn't know is that since she doesn't take naps, I've been putting her to bed at 8:30. Some nights, like when she has to get up extra early, she goes to bed at 8! Now, she's smart enough to figure out what's going on and argue!
I guess it's just another symptom of her growing up.
