life lessons from Bayley

2 year olds are extremely confident, honest and precocious

here are some fun tips from bayley that may boost your self esteem, honesty, or get you some weird looks:

put some new hairclips in your hair and walk down the stairs and say:
"ta ta ta daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa i'm a princess!!!"

when some one says i love you respond "i know"

don't ever be afraid to ask questions, any questions at all, like:

mommy, what's on your lips??
dry skin

the next time you are eating dessert with someone, look them right in the eyes and say "i like you"

sing your favorite song out loud several times a day (hopefully it's not happy birthday captain from the wiggles show)

walk up to a complete stranger and enthusiastically tell them that you have bubble gum!!!

just know that you know everything, just like Bayley
and if you don't know, without hesitation ask "WHY?!"

While we try to teach our children all about life,
Our children teach us what life is all about.
