- Pea obviously knows how strong those words are. To move from not wanting to not liking to not loving clearly demonstrates an appreciation for the importance of these words and their significance. That she is using these words to try and get what she wants is especially crappy. So, yeah, that sucked.
- I wasn’t expecting to hear her tell me she doesn’t love me for another ten years, at least. It was a bit of a shock to have that level of rebellion come to fruition so fast.
The rest of the diaper and pajama routine was fraught with mini tantrums and dead weighting. Once I managed to get her diaper and pajamas on, I let Pea squirm away and she walked down the hallway, turned to face me, and sulked to the floor and into herself for a few seconds.
