I sigh. A lot. Big, huge heavy sighs of frustration, disgust or just "what were they thinking?" kind of sighs. How do I know this? Reia has started to sigh. A lot. Big, huge heavy sighs of frustration, disgust, or "what is Reese thinking?" When the girls in a particularly lovely mood I sigh more than I actually talk.
I have noticed it more and more on her which leads me to the alarming fact that the apple does not fall far from the tree. You don't notice how ugly a habit is until your 4 year old starts it. Yesterday we were in the car on our way to McDonald's (where a Happy Meal has gone to $3.79, but that is another post all together.) and the traffic came to a stand still. We could see McD's, but not get to it. To which this was my daughter's response:
*Big, heavy sigh* "Mom, can't they just start moving up there. I can see McDonald's, and if they would just move, we could go ahead and eat." *Big, heavy sigh #2* She also had her hand motions all in line with her frustration.
