A portrait a week of the Little Ladie.
Miss Emerging Bossy Britches. She's onto a new strategy where she'll tell us, "I stay," or "No sing Mama," or even "No talk Dad." We're trying to break it to her gently that actually, we're in charge. We can talk if we feel like it. I can talk if I feel like it, right? Sometimes I catch a look in Mountain Dad's eye as he watches the Little Ladie and I negotiate a differing of opinion, and I know that She-Who-Is-In-Charge cannot be immediately identified. Bugger it.
