Tia is definitely growing up.
Today we had planned a play date at a friends house. It seems every time we go there, we have a problem leaving and Tia ends up in tears because she doesn't want to go. Today before we headed over I told her that I REALLY didn't want her to cry at Sophia's house. I went so far as to tell her if she cried while we were there, we would just have to leave. I explained that I wanted her to be a polite girl.
In the car on the way there, Gia got a little fussy. I heard Tia whisper to her "Shh Ju Ju, no crying!". I held in a laugh.
When play time was over and it was time to go I said "OK, we have to leave in about 2 minutes because it's almost Gia's nap time". Tia very politely put down the doll she was playing with and said "OK", then proceeded to go to the door. I was floored! All the way home she talked about how much fun she had and how she would like to go back. Then she added "And I no cry Mommy!". She was proud of herself, and I made sure to tell her how proud I was of her too.
My little girl is growing up so fast.
