Don't show off

Caitlin is a confident kid and also one who loves to be the centre of attention. Every chance she gets, she will 'show off' whatever about herself or anything she has that she thinks is good, impressive, clever, pretty, etc etc. If you pay her a compliment, she'll readily agree without batting an eyelid and thank you for it.

Caitlin (flexing her biceps): Mum, see, my muscles are getting hard right?

Me: Well, not too bad....

Caitlin: They are medium hard?

Me (trying to grab opp to 'psycho' her): Yes, if you eat healthy food and sit quietly at the table while eating, then you can get stronger. Do you want to call Daddy and tell him about your muscles?

Caitlin: No.

Me: Call lah...

Caitlin: Nooo, I don't want to show off.

I was so amused that she said those words!
