My Life with a Threenager
This is my life now…..
Lying in the dark, listening to the Frozen Soundtrack.
Making a hot chocolate without cream that should have been with cream but they weren’t going to drink it anyway but still they wanted, didn’t want the cream.
You’re Elsa when Anna sings but you’re Anna when Elsa sings, OK? Basically you don’t sing. At all.
Watching Ben and Holly until you believe you are actually an elf *blows trumpet*
Eating tomatoes at nursery, but not at home.
Playing matching card games with a complete cheat. And making sure they win or else there’s big trouble.
Pushing the trike around whilst she peddles madly screaming “we need more speed!” in an attempt to accost other children in the park.
Everyone’s her best friend. Or they’re not. But they are.
Laughing manically whilst she smears expensive hand cream into the sofa.
Watching an evolving sense of style which includes using a coat for trousers.
Figuring out answers to questions such as “Who made the steering wheel?” And “Why do we have tables?”
Not touching anything without first being told to. But when I’m told to touch something check it’s in the right way.
Clearly not understanding very simple instructions.
Finding things which have been taken from various places such as nursery or my dressing table hidden in pockets.
Making up bedtime stories but being told exactly what needs to happen in the story and it then taking a very long time to complete the story which is nothing like how it started.
Furniture being used as balance beams and trampolines and wishing she didn’t like gymnastics so much
Wanting the new baby to be called Cupcake
Experimenting with make up such as nail polish for lipstick
Feeling so very tired and wondering why you have such a spirited child
