Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you. ~Robert Fulghum

Everyday before Ella goes to preschool, I let her sit down and watch 1/2 hour of television while I clean up around the house. She always picks Pinky Dinky Doo. For those of you who are not familiar with Pinky Dinky Doo, the show is interactive. I usually hear Ella talking/screaming out answers to questions or singing along. Today, all I heard was silence. So, I come downstairs to this

I asked Ella why she was drinking a Diet Coke. She looks at me and says:

"I want to be just like momma."

Yikes! I have been trying to stop drinking pop, especially Diet Coke, but once in a while-a girl just needs a caffeine boost. After today, I think I'm good. I'm done drinking Diet Coke in public. When and if I need a lift-I am so in the closet drinking my Diet Coke.

And if anyone is up tonight between 10-3 am, call me-I'll be up with a child bouncing off the walls.
