The Tiny Tyrant

She's very commanding. And demanding. Charming, too, when she chooses. At 18 months, Laura is most definitely "a character," as Donna has dubbed her, and a force to be reckoned with.

This has made for an interesting summer tour. We are thoroughly enjoying ourselves, but there are times when a) I would love a bit more freedom; b) grandparents would love a bit more (any, really) cuddling; and c) Danny would love fewer bites.

Instead, we all clamor to amuse her, cajole her, placate her. I really do have limits, and I swear she doesn't get away with everything, but there are lots of days when Laura's whims rule the roost.

Can you blame us?
