pushing the limits.
My schedule has been a little ...different... lately due to unexpected circumstances, so I have been able to spend a lot of extra time with Claire. And this time with her is such a blessing amidst much the chaos and confusion. The better part of our days have been spent at the park and the river, and Claire has gotten pretty bold throughout her adventures. Her new game involves swimming across the creek, jumping up the riverbank, and going to explore the woods. I wouldn't have such a problem with this if she would come when called, but lately she looks at me - from the other side of the river, mind you - like, "Mo-om, this is soooo not a big deal - I'll be back later" before she turns away and continues exploring. NOT OKAY!!!! After two days in a row of such behavior, the Little Miss has been placed on river restriction. What does this mean, you ask? Basically: she's grounded.
