We finally seem to have had a break through with the lil one...... it has been a helluva month with her let me tell you!!!

She and I had a long talk yesterday -- let's say I had a brain wave and decided to try it out.... We talked about how she wants to be grown up and independent and that I GET that!!  I suggested that when she wants to do / try something new - something independent - she should 'check in' with her dad or me first... that way we might be able to offer some advise and keep her safe....... AND most importantly - she won't look so bossy!!   She agreed that might work............ 

keeping my fingers crossed that for now - not forever but for now! - behaviours will improve........ 

Best part of yesterday though - was watching her and Sir Steve build and decorate a gingerbread house from scratch!!  It was a first for both of them.  It was nice for me - I got to just supervise and take pictures - and let them bond .....
(BEST PART - I hate royal icing the standard 'glue' for gingerbread houses - and this year discovered if you melt sugar it works like crazy glue !  and takes about 10 seconds to set and hold everything together!)

Here's a picture of the finished gingerbread house proudly displayed in the kitchen !

Life is good when you have Eureka moments!
