This morning when Jazmine was finishing up on the potty I encouraged her to try putting on her pull-up without my help. I left her alone for a few minutes and when I returned she was sitting on the floor doing just that.
However, she had both legs in one opening. Wanting to praise her for the effort she made, in a happy tone I said “Good job Jazmine–good job trying!” She looked me directly in the eyes and said with great authority “shut-up!”
Shocked speechless, I took her advice!
