Sarah got in trouble tonight for not being obedient. She began crying and told me that she is "tired of having to listen to everybody!"
I've often felt bad for kids. I can't remember or imagine how it feels to be told everything to do and when to do it by everyone in your life.
It was just another example of Sarah's fierce independence and strong will. I can't imagine easy-going Ben ever complaining about everyone telling him what to do, if we tell him what to do, I think he figures that's just something he doesn't need to think about.
