is my new least favorite word.  It is pronounced diff-ert in the two-year-old dialect.  Clara uses it to mean that she wants anything else and/or her own way.  For instance, if I were to say to her, “Let’s go outside, ” and head for the back door, she would tell me “Diff-ert,” and drag me to the front door.  We’ll be eating dinner and she’ll grab my plate or water and announce, “Diff-ert,” while pushing hers away and strewing mine across the table.  These sorts of things go on all day long.  I’m tired today.  Can you tell?  Independence is very demanding.

    This must be new since last week. I am tired today too, no napping for Drew or I for two days and lots of waking up in the middle of the night, I might just go to bed now.

    Maybe Clara decided something diff -ernt is better than falling face down on the floor!!!One could hope, she is learning that everything has a different concept, pretty smart little cookie, maybe choc chip or peanut butter!
