Two-year-old Katie insists “me do myself” about everything.  Katie won’t allow Mother to tie her shoes or towel her off after her bath.  Mother makes daily resolutions to circumvent Katie’s ideas of independence.  Finally, Katie and Mother have a showdown over Katie putting on her coat.  It ends with Mother showing Katie a magical way that she can put on her coat all by herself.  “Me do myself,” Katie beams.  Later, as Mother buckles Katie into her carseat, Katie voices her trademark protest,  “Noo-wah, me do myself”.
