Monkey See, Monkey Do

Yesterday morning as the Hoos was trying to get the girls out of the house, he had to scold AK. She stopped, burst into tears, looked around, and ran to the only other person in the house for comfort - LP. According to the Hoos, LP was a bit stunned, but she stepped up, eating her bagel with one hand and patting her sister's back with the other as AK held on tight to her big sister's waist.

Last night it was AK's turn to be bewildered.

As I sat with the girls at the dining room table while they were eating dinner, AK put her feet on the table. Obviously a big no-no and a recent habit because we moved her to the booster seat and out of the high chair (YAY! A corner of my dining room will no longer be filled by clumsy baby gear!). LP stood up from her chair, and began pushing AK's chair away from the table (her legs aren't so long so by moving her a few inches you remedy the problem). But LP kept pushing and turning AK's chair until she was facing her. She gently grabbed AK's chin, looked her in the eye and said, "That's not funny [AK]. It is NOT funny!"

For the record, she said she was pretending to be Daddy, not Mommy.
