Yesterday afternoon and this afternoon Isabella did something that I never taught her. Yesterday, she grabbed her diaper rash creme and handed it to me. Then she made a kissy face, puckering her lips very dramatically, VERY CUTE. So I gave her a kiss. She then proceeded to sign “more”, which means “Open this mommy”. I hugged her but said no.
Then today she brought me a lifesaver, that was wrapped in its own plastic. She did the same thing. Somehow she has learned that maybe if “I butter mommy up with a kiss, she will give me what I want”. Don’t ask me how she learned this, she is only 14 months old. It melted my heart though. I still said NO.
