Flower or Leaves?

When you try your best to draw her a flower but she crumples her face up and says: “that is a stem with 3 leaves on it, draw something else.”


On Listening

While trying to control myself to not snap at Zoë for not listening.

Me: “You are so stubborn!!”

Z: “What is stubborn, Mama?”

Me: “You don’t listen!”

Z: “Why? When you were small did you always listen?”

Wow. My 5-year old. I am dumbfounded.

Me: “Yes. I always listened.”

Z: “I don’t believe you.”

When did she become so smart and so right?
