Kai’s newest affectation has worn thin. His constant call of “cookie” is no longer welcome in our household. It’s not so much the word itself, but his tone is rather impertinent and mischievous. So we're telling him to stop? Are we making too much of this? Are we forgetting that he's still a 2-year old (practically 3)? Maybe, but he does need to learn about limits (to our patience, namely) and not being so sassy.
At the risk of scolding one child and praising another (although not at the expense of the other), Reiko is skipping along with ease and acumen. Reaching 25 in her consecutive skip count, she's also mastered a few backwards skips too.
