Okay, well, maybe there aren't any celebrations. Maybe there is just lots of meowing and hissing.
Me: "Emma, do you want chicken or tacos for dinner?"
Me: "Emma, do you have any homework?"
And the I'm-about-ready-to-lose-my-mind-quit-your-meowing-and-talk-like-a-person-example:
Me: "Emma quit meowing and talk! You are not a cat!"
Emma: "HISS! HIIISSSSSSSS!!!!!!"
My hissing cat. I mean child.
We were in a restaurant where we saw a friend from Emma's class. "Hello Hannah," I said. To which she answered: "Meow." Oh goodness. It's contagious. So I asked Emma's teacher if her meowing was a problem in school. The teacher told me she couldn't stand all the "kitty cats" anymore and told ALL the girls if they meow during school anymore, they will get a card flip. Meowing is now only allowed during recess.
Someday I will look back on this and miss this. I can't wait to miss this - because that would mean it WENT AWAY!!
