My daughter Michaela is just over 3 years old. It’s funny how quickly you forget what a 3 year old (or 4 year old or 5 year old) is like. The other day she was taking forever to wash her hands after going to the bathroom. When I went in to check on her she was very carefully washing her elbows. “I’m washing my elbows so they don’t get hurt, Mommy.” Um, sure. Why else would you wash your elbows? 3 year olds have such funny ways of thinking about things.
She will regularly come up to me and say, “I’m beautiful, Mommy.” Of course you are sweetheart. It’s so funny, I’m quite certain those words never came out of my mouth when I was a little girl. But she is completely confident that she is beautiful. I hope she’s always that certain. 🙂
I’ll share this sweet photo of little Sophia. Don’t ya just want to eat her up? 🙂
And no, I don’t ever put clothing on my children – we just let them run around naked like monkeys. It’s part of our homeschooling cult religion, you know! ;p J/K
began our day by throwing a major fit because I gave her a cup of milk rather than juice. Silly me. A few minutes later, she climbed into my lap with her blankie and spent 5 minutes cuddling and sweetly cooing at me before toddling off to wreck havoc throughout the house. Life with a young toddler! 🙂
My 6 year old says to his 10 year old brother, “I think Mom went overboard with Michaela.”
(Michaela’s my 1 year old daughter.)
“Because she’s just so super cute!”
I don’t know how much it has to do with me, but I agree she is super cute!
