We've reached that stage in parenting where we call our parents to tell them about Kate's most recent behavioral antics, and they just laugh and laugh. Payback time.
Kate has always been a very physical child--climbing anything she can, picking up objects as big as herself, etc.--and sometimes she is just plain wild. She's just having fun and exploring her world and what she can do, but like any child can push the boundaries a bit too far. She throws food from her high chair, she runs toward the street, she flings books from their shelves. It is starting to go beyond innocent exuberance toward willful disobedience as we sense she understands our reprimands and yet continues. It seems we're treading into that complicated land called Discipline.
