Marlee’s favorite phrase at the moment – ‘I do it’. She wants to do everything for herself – folding the washing, making breakfast, eating fejoas. She even sobbed her way through putting her own plasters on her grazed foot (see above photograph) all by herself, because she is a ‘big girl”.
‘Mummy do it’ is the other phrase she is practicing whenever she doesn’t want to do something. Nappy in bin – ‘Mumm do it.’ Dropped toys – ‘Mummy do it.’ Cup in the sink after morning Milo – ‘Mummy do it.’
