Self-Congratulations

Rose just used my leg to secure herself as she rappelled off the bed. Her face was so intense. Big eyes, a little bit fearful, looking at me with faith until her toes touched the floor. Then a big smile. "You did it!" I told her in that mommy-cheerleader voice that makes me annoyed with myself.

She toddled off happily squealing something that sounded very much like, "I did it!"

I've decided that if I played back everything I said during the day I would probably despise myself.

Way to go, Rose! You are now officially a toddler! :-) Look out world!
