Sadie is having a lot of fun playing on her own. And if she doesn’t want to play with you, she’ll let you know… by giving you a fire truck.
The first time it happened Grumpa was sitting in a chair next to Sadie’s toy cars and Wonder Pet school house and he moved something in the school house. Sadie turned around and looked at him. Then she moved his hand out of the school house. Next she moved back and grabbed the fire truck. Turning she handed it to Grumpa and then gave his hand a little shove to make sure that it wasn’t going to sneak back over to encroach on Wonder Pet territory.
Now handing the fire truck to any of us has become a way of saying “I’m playing on my own and I don’t need help!”
She hands me the fire truck at least once a day, which is kind of funny because usually she want everyone playing Wonder Pets!
Sadie’s also been having a hard time adjusting to the time change. It was still light outside when bedtime came around tonight and Sadie kept getting out of bed and walking over to me and then giggling because she knew she was being silly. So we’re going to try pushing bedtime back from 7:30 to 8pm for a while. Maybe it will mean sleeping in a tiny bit later! That would be nice!
