Why do I even bother?

I have to admit that I have been incredibly lucky with my first child - and other than that horrific time when she painted the beautiful dark hardwood floors in her bedroom YELLOW (and almost met St Peter at The Pearly Gates two minutes later), I really haven't had a moment's trouble with her. But recently, I have begun to see a slight form of rebellion in that she will do the absolute bare minimum required while still doing as she is told.

EXHIBIT A: I asked her to put her toys in her bedroom. Which she did. About 5cms across the threshold.


EXHIBIT B: I asked her to take her plate to the kitchen. Which she did. And placed it on the counter JUST inside the door.


It might be time to invest in some pepper spray!
