Sometimes it feels like I'm playing a never ending game with you but I don't know the rules or the rules keep changing. Such is the life when you have a threenager.
Meal time fun
To be called to the table to eat for any meal, we must say:
"If you have yellow hair and (insert the item of clothing you are wearing), come & eat!"
If you eat all of your food, we let you have a treat or candy. Every time you ask us how many pieces of candy you can have by saying, "can I have 3 or 4 or 2?" The answer is always 2 but can't blame a girl for trying.
Cheese Sandwich = Grilled Cheese.
Don't call it grilled cheese cuz you won't eat it if we do.
Coffee = Hot Chocolate from the Keurig
Crackers & Cheese = Lunchables
• If you have a baby in your belly, you ate a baby.
• If you laugh too much, your teeth will fall out.
• If you're the line leader, people can't go in front of you. If they do, they are rude.
• If you don't stay by your mommy or daddy, a stranger will get you & that's not good.
Big Sister status: Awesome
Eloise is so good with Preston. We really couldn't ask for a better relationship between them. No matter where we are, she often tells us, "I wanna give Preston a hug or a kiss." She does this everyday when I'm dropping them off at school. In the moments when she is losing her patience with him and requesting that I "move him from her area," I think about how tender she is with him on the car rides home during the week. Preston hates car rides & will often scream the whole ride (35-45 minutes). Eloise talks to him so sweetly and says, "it's ok Bubbas...no need to cry...it's ok." Sometimes she even sings to him or makes funny faces. It's precious. I love it when she calls him "Prestie" or "Bubbas" or "Monkey Man." He absolutely adores her and loves watching her.
Lately, she has shown some subtle signs of jealousy so I'm trying to do more one-on-one activities with her where she truly has my undivided attention. She has learned the phrase - Girls Night Out - and I love it!
Eloise loves her books. Each night she picks out 2-3 books before bed. We read it first and then she "reads" it. Her memory is impressive when she recounts the story but her imagination is even more impressive when she decides to make up her own story.
It's true what they say - the days are long but the years are short. Before we know it, you'll be 4 and headed off to Pre-K. But for now, live it up with your threenager status and keep us laughing everyday.
