Lydia had ballet today. She loves ballet. It is so fun to watch her dance with the other little girls. She spends most of the time watching herself in the mirror or watching to see if we are watching her. She periodically turns and waves all excited and cheesy. It is too cute. Well, today I took her potty right before class started. Then after about 20 minutes in she looks at me through the window and mouths that she has to pee-pee. I open the door, tell her teacher that she has to use the restroom, and take her. I sit her on the potty and she doesn’t go. I said to her “You don’t even have to go potty, do you?” She looked at me and said “Mom, I didn’t really like that part.” So the little punk pretends that she has to pee so that she can get out of the part of class that she doesn’t like. Sneaky. Brilliant. Manipulative. Already!  Goodness, I do not want her to be that kid that pretends that she needs to go to the clinic or bathroom just to get out of something.  But, then again,  I remember doing that as a kid too. Sigh.
