Tonight as Abby was going to bed.
Abs" Momma, before the baby comes you should sort of train me or something so I don't need you to lay down with me to go to sleep. Because when the baby comes and when i get my high bed you aren't going to be climbing up there right? Plus you are going to need to rest and some quiet time."
Me: (trying not to laugh too much) Yeah, you are so right sweetie.
I get up a few minutes later and she asks is her little voice if i will check on her, of course I will I say. She then proceeds to curl up with her 4 ft. long rattle snake her Papa bought her at the zoo and falls asleep on her own.
A few times in the last few days she'll start to ask me to help her with something, usually involving getting dressed and then she quickly says, before i have a chance to mutter a word, almost to herself, " Oh yeah, I'm 6, I can do that." and she goes off and does it for herself.
