So if you haven't seen Charlotte lately, (or at all) she is a mini, mini me. Seriously. She looks exactly like me and fortunately/unfortunately we also have the same personalities. Add to it the fact that she is 2 and you can guess how well we get along most days. Lately, I have decided that I am not going to butt heads with her any more - but look for ways I can say yes (without losing the top-dog status - but make her think she has a say)! So this has been going on for a few weeks and I am thrilled to report that I no longer want to sell her! Instead of screaming at me today, she told me (randomly) "I love you Mommy. You are my best friend!" (Hallelujah choruses in the background...) I am shocked and warmed and loved and over the moon! I have figured her out!!!! Tonight, as she was getting ready for bed I wanted to "review" so as to not forget my new status. I was giving her a cuddle and loves and said, "who is your best friend, Charlotte?" She chirped right up and said "Kiah - not you Mommy, and she is not your friend. She's mine."
