My daughter has got this odd, yet very cute, little pose that she does, usually in response to praise from me. She holds here hands either side of her face and spreads out her fingers, so she looks like a flower. She will then say something in a little baby voice that just melts my heart, and she knows it.
Yesterday lunchtime everyone else had already grabbed something to eat and she decided that she wanted to cook herself something nice. She worked really hard at it, choosing ingredients, chopping things up, whisking eggs, etc and ended up with a Chinese omlette, with ham, garlic, onion, baby sweetcorn, etc, in it. The smell was amazing, especially when all I had eaten was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! I decided to try my luck.
"Mm, that smells amazing! It was so nice of you to cook it for me!"
"It's not for you, it's for me."
"No, I am sure I heard you say it was for me. Didn't you hear that mummy?"
"It's not for you, it's for me!"
"But you are such a sweet, kind, lovely girl-"
At this point she turned round, struck the pose I described above and said, in the baby voice:
"No I'm not!"
And sat down and ate the omlette.
