Today when we were leaving the gym, Liliana didn't want to settle down and get into her car seat. I finally got her buckled in and she said she wanted a treat (animal crackers or an occasional cereal bar I keep on hand for her when we're running around and she gets a bit hungry). I told her that she didn't get a treat because she wasn't doing what mommy asked her to do, but that if she was a good girl she could earn her treat back after lunch. She started whining and I asked her, "Do you want to be a good girl and get your treat after lunch, or do you want to be naughty and go straight to bed when we get home?"
She answered with, "I want to go to California!" (Apparently she'd rather go visit family than be a good girl for mommy - see previous post)
I asked, "What are you going to do in California? Are you going to visit Great-grandma and grandpa?"
"Yes. And go swimming." That little girl has a good memory because we haven't been to CA since last summer - when she was only 18 months old!
