Be your own person

I have so many things I want to post from the weekend but I am exhausted and don't have the time tonight.

But, I need to blog this one before I forget it. Katie had a Ring Pop candy from Dance Class tonight. They sell candy at the Dance Studio and Katie spotted the candy last year and I always let her pick out one treat for being a good girl in class. So, tonight it was a Ring Pop. She had it in her mouth like a pacifier. She was calling it her "binky". The ring pop was gone but the plastic "binky" was still her in mouth. I told her to throw it in the trash because it was time to get ready for bed. She tells me that Baby Sister is going to have a binky. Katie often talks about Baby Sister(we have been logged in alittle over 14 months to adopt again from China). This is how the conversation went.

Katie: We have to buy Baby Sister a binky.
Me: Do you think Baby Sister will suck her thumb like you?
Katie: No, she will use a binky. I love to suck my thumb.
Me: Maybe Baby Sister will like to suck her thumb too.
Katie: No she will use a binky, Baby Sister needs to be her own person.

I was cracking up laughing. She was very matter of fact and serious. How does she even know to say that??? I guess my lectures of be your own person Katie you don't have to do it just because so and so did it is working.

She is so funny.

Hope to post all about our Christmas party with pictures tomorrow night.
