Kids imitate. They watch and they follow to help them know what to do and how to act. Beth has this down to a science.
If we're in the car on a warm summer day and I happen to roll my window down? She will also roll her window down. Then she'll study my window and roll hers up about 1/2 inch. Then she'll look at mine again and roll hers down 1/4 of an inch... it has to be exactly the same.
The other day we were sitting at the table having breakfast and I picked up my cup to take a sip of tea and she picked up her cup. I held mine in my hand as I looked out the window and she just kept sort of glancing over at me. I took another sip and so did she.
I have to be so careful about the things I say or do!
