Weak In The Knees...


It's no secret that our granddaughter Madison loves to come over to our house--and she hates it when the time comes to go back home.
I can't think of very many times that she's left our house without putting up a fuss. One of her parents will usually lead her out while she's wailing...
The other day, when the time came to go back to her house, Madison proclaimed that "my knees hurt, and I can't walk." As she proclaimed this, she let her knees go limp, and pretended that she was unable to get around. It was quite a dramatic performance.
It never ceases to amaze me what children can dream up at such an early age. I never thought our three and one half year old granddaughter would become crippled at the thought of going home!
It's a nice feeling to be loved...

It is so great that you are recording these Maddie words and actions. These memorable moments slip so quickly from our memory. Loved your little drama queen's stay-at-Mimi's strategy.

Don't you love it though to know that they love YOU so much. I think 2 of my daughter's 3 would move in here permanently if we let them. The other one is more of a home body.

I'd say that Maddie is headed for Hollywood! lol Diana

I'm like you... amazed at what they can come up with! I know the daycare kids have some stories they tell. :)
