Colette has been playing on her own for about an hour. She just gathered her stuffed animals and started cutting falling stars for them. I said “honey be careful with you fingers. Don’t cut them.”

“Mommy, I’m playing with my toys. Don’t interrupt me when I’m playing with them, because that would make me sad.”

So at the tender age of 3, my daughter is already telling me to butt out…. :(
