Some parents just don’t appreciate how grown up a two-year-old can be. (Namely, me.) Today when we were getting ready to go out, Birdy thought it would be a good idea to put her shoes on before her pants. “Birdy, you’ve got to put your pants on first,” I said. “Mum, I can make my own decisions,” she declared. “I’m a big girl, I can make my own decisions.” How could I forget? Toddlers know everything. Next she’ll be asking for the car keys.
