Today Lacy was pretty cute. I got all dressed and ready for the day and she came in and said, "Mommy, can you help me find MY black skirt?" I said, "No, Lacy that is a Sunday skirt" and so SHE said... "well you are wearing your black skirt, and I want to match you!" I couldn't resist. She even looked through all her shirts to find the one closest in color to mine. I love having a little mini-me. I can't wait until she is old enough to take to the salon or to get our nails done and enjoy shopping!We have also started a "listening chart" (which if you know me, is so not like me) but we have a little behavior problem we are trying to work on. For both of us actually. I'm a crazy yelling mom and she has a hard time listening to me. So I am not yelling anymore and she is getting better too! We made a "good listening chart" She gets a sticker when she is being especially good or does something the first time I ask her... and if I get really frusterated with her not listening or doing something naughty, she has to take a sticker off. Then when she gets to the end of a line, she gets a suprise! We went to target to get some cheap treats and she is really excited. We picked out some cute princess stuff from the dollar spot, some play-doh, and some other cute things. She finally reached the end of a line today and was really excited about the prize she picked. Lets hope this keeps working. I told her after she finished the whold page she gets her BIG prize we picked out. (a slip-n-slide). It took 2 days to finish one line, and she is still motivated, so, so am I! Wish us luck, she's a fiesty one, that Lacy Jo!
