sara is really funny



ok, so sara surprised me yesterday. that kid! i was trying to get the girls dressed and out the door, but they were delaying. anna katherine was finally ready, but sara was still jumping on the couch singing in her underwear. so i used our usual threat-- (don't call dfcs)- "ok, anna katherine and i are leaving. do you want to stay here by yourself? if you don't get dressed, we're leaving you home- just you and kitty"...i mean, at this point i had been trying to get them dressed for 20 minutes. she still refused to get dressed, just singing and jumping on the couch, saying she didn't want to go. so i grabbed anna katherine and we headed out the door. i knew that if this were anna katherine, this would be the point that she would come running and crying hysterically not wanting me to leave her. and then she would quickly get dressed and we would leave. this is what i was expecting. what happens? instead, sara says "goodbye!!" with a large grin on her face and continues to sing on the couch. anna katherine on the other hand was beginning to cry, worried i was going to leave sara at home alone. i assured her we wouldn't leave sara, to which she replied "oh, you were just tricking me." so i get anna katherine buckled in the car and gave her a few books to read. and we waited. i'm thinking sara will come barreling through the front door hysterically looking for us. but no. she's singing and having a good 'ole time. i sneak up to the front door to peak inside, and see sara opening up the tv cabinet, preparing to watch cartoons for the day! perfectly content to be left alone. hmmmm. that girl! one thing i'm learning- what works for one doesn't necessarily work for the other. dang it.
