Are you having trouble getting that tutu off? Do you want Mommy to help?
“No! No help! No Mommy help!”
Oh, okay. You’re just going to work on it until you do it all by yourself, huh?
“Yes! Do by myself!”
You are so independent now. You don’t need your mama for anything.
“I need Mama.”
What do you need Mama for?
“I need Mama to wuv me.”
For all her crazy toddler antics, her protests, her tantrums, her fury and frustrations, it is nice to know that my littlest daughter needs me for wuv. And also for more dip for her carrots, because she can’t reach it herself.
