With the exception of a very few coveted items (her favorite milk cup, her drawing pad, and her Daddy’s Ipad), Cadence has never really been one of those “Mine” kids.
Where’s some wood? I should probably knock. Odds are, I’ll say this now and she’ll wake up tomorrow hellbent on hoarding her possessions and making a liar out of me.
But honestly, Cadence is a pretty easygoing kid overall and will share just about anything willingly. Give her something to eat and she’ll always offer you a bite. Give her a toy to play with and she’ll always offer you a turn.
The backyard birdbath though? She ain’t sharing that with anyone…not even the birds. This poor little guy had enough time to land and get just one little sip before Cadence spotted him…
“Hey!” she hollered.
Then she ran across the yard, waving her little yellow shovel, yelling and barking like Lady from Lady and the Tramp. (Yeah, that’s another one of Cadence’s new “things”–barking like Lady and chasing birds. Crazy kid!).
And once Mr. Bird flew away and peace was restored to her little universe, Cadence was content to play.
