I am "that"

I am, yet again. This time, I am turning into one of THOSE mommas. You know, those mommas that will insist that her child shows the neighbours what she has just learned and will insist that the child does it over and over again for the neighbours.

This evening, when the hubs pulled onto the drive-way, so did the neighbours. Now, this particular neighbour of mine are highly elusive. They live upstairs and never comes out when they are home, ever unless they are going to the mall or to work. It was definitely one of those rare occasions that we saw the entire family getting out of the car and heading upstairs.

I was out with Ashley to greet the hubs. And the wife, Mrs. F saw us and naturally, we talked shop for a little bit. Ashley learned how to wave recently but getting her to wave is, at times akin to pulling a donkey to the river for a drink. Hardly ever happens unless she is in the mood.

And I wanted to show her new skill off to Mrs. F. “Wave bye bye Ashley...wave bye bye Ashley”. Ashley just stares at Mrs. F. Helps her by taking her hand and motioning it to "wave" hoping she would get the drift and wave..”Wave bye bye Ashley...”...Darn it!! Why don't you just wave?

Oh well, I couldn't get her in the mood after a few tries but I think I would've just stood there, holding her and repeatedly ask her to 'wave bye bye' if my neighbour didn't signal to me that she was heading upstairs..OK, have I turned into THOSE mommas? OMG!! Have I?? -sigh-


Another 'skill' Ashley learned recently, getting under the table
