(Don't you love her self portrait?)
This year, we've been letting Gracie stay up later than her siblings. A whole half an hour. (To listen to Olivia you would think it was HOURS....) It has afforded us great time to just talk to her, by herself. No one else tells us what she meant to say, or interrupts or anything!
Last night we were watching a show together. A reality weight loss show that I generally think is pretty child safe. But a couple of the contestant were swearing. A lot. It lead to a discussion about not always needing to use language others use.
I mentioned that, as she is getting older, she is going to hear a lot more inappropriate language from her friends. But that doesn't mean she has to use it.
And my baby girl looked at me and said, "I know, Mom. I am never going to talk like that. It is not appropriate and God doesn't like it."
I love that girl!!
