Should we worry that she's a narcissist?

I put her to bed. W. and I are in the living room, and hear the tell-tale squeaks as the little feet make their way down the stairs.

"Mommy, I have to tell you something."

She comes all the way down, and whispers "I love you" in my ear.

"Daddy, I have to tell you something."

She slides around the coffee table, climbs on top of W. and whispers "I love you" in his ear.

She sits down on the floor and announces "I have to tell me something. I love me!"

No. She's got self-esteem! And good on her! Many of her gender could use a larger helping of same.

What I love is that she got out of bed and came downstairs for this ritual! You can imagine her in bed planning it all.

I was going to go with the self-esteem stuff. As long as she's not still doing stuff like that in college (like I see on the job everyday), it's cool.

I love when kids are so open about their feelings, especially when they really like themselves.

She's a doll. She sounds like a happy girl.

Wow. I think I love her, too. Great story (the first time, if she starts trying to pull this everynight, well then, I'll reevaluate)
