Stubborn


Macey has a little bit of a stubborn streak. She likes things when she likes them and how she likes them no matter what. Parental requests? Easily ignored. Rules? She can take them or leave them, her choice. Societal norms? It depends on her mood.

For example. . .

Last Tuesday was Neighborhood Night Out. The girls love the moon bounce and the free ice cream. It's a great time for them. And this year the girls were big enough for the games. Emma participated in Musical Chairs and the Hula Hoop competition. She did well and got some fun prizes.

Macey, on the other hand . . .

Miss Stubborn decided that she would try out Musical Chairs. We walked over, picked out a chair, and explained the rules quickly. When the music started, all of the kids got up and started walking, except for Macey. We told Macey to get up and she quickly shouted back "NO!"

Well, that's one way to win.
