I can't be sure

But the oldest daughter maybe turning into a future hall monitor.
But for now we will call it being a "Good little helper". She is quick to identify, and then shout out indiscretions she might witness involving the cat, the dog, or her little sister.
"Daddy, Daddy the cat is on the leather chair!" ~ helpful
"Daddy, Creechas under the table!" ~ helpful
"Daddy, you shouldn't have given me that apple juice, I drank it too fast now my tummy hurts." ~ blame shifting little varmint

After a recent trip up from the basement to grab her PJs she noted the tv was on upstairs with Tom & Jerry on, and it was too late for that show to be on, and Mommy should know better than that. ~ over the top Nelly Olsen-style.
It will be very interesting to see if this is just a phase, or she does turn out to be this good of a kid through those 'dreaded' teenage years.
Tim will tell.
On a related note I am thrilled that Tom & Jerry is her favorite cartoon.
And that it hasn't been reedited to purge the violence, much the way some of the Bugs Bunnies have. "Mommy if the cat gets runned over in the drive-way we will have to peel it off the ground." That is a Tom & Jerry education if I have ever heard one.
