28 Things to Love about Lila
Your little rebellious nature. You know where you aren't supposed to go and things you aren't supposed to get into and you go right for them with every opportunity you have. But you look back at me like, "Mama, I'm about to go play in the doggy's food dish. Isn't that naughty? Aren't I really cute the way I know that I'm being naughty and I do it anyway? Aren't you going to stop me?" Sometimes a stern, "Li-LA" is enough to get you to repent, but most of the time I have to chase you down and scold you. Usually though I'm holding back a smile because you are giggling at the little game in which I so willingly participate. You know why I play your little game? It's because I love you too much to let you eat dog food. And also it's so crazy cold and snowy out and I'd really rather not be driving through the blizzard to the ER when you ingest 409. But mostly because I love you and I don't want anything bad to happen to you. Ever.
Even when you act like a teenager by making a mess of your room and closing the door in my face.
