Well my daughter turned 3 this last week and it was a little upsetting. Of course I want her to grow up, have experiences, live a life that is full and beautiful…but there’s a selfish part of me that wants her to stay exactly as she is.
I remember reading an article when I was pregnant that told a glorious tale about a woman who had potty trained her child by 8 months. In my ignorant state I thought to myself “I too will take this path and have a potty-trained child before age 1.”
Weather is the greatest excuse to be lazy, such as “it’s too hot to go on a hike” or “it’s too cold to go outside”. I’ve used these excuses many times to sit on my couch in lieu of doing anything outdoorsy.
Finally, after almost two years of figuring each other out, we have developed a family routine. Now that two years old is just around the corner, we’ve been talking a lot about a little brother or sister.
Weather in Reno has been crazy lately. One day we are at the park in a t-shirt and the next day we’re in a snowsuit sledding down our driveway. But one thing is consistent in our weekly routine regardless of the weather: Fantastic Fridays at Jump Man Jump!
At two years old, my daughter is finally starting to understand about holidays. I’ve been trying to clue her in on how fabulous they are, but she’s just now cluing in. Not only are they fun, filled with family and good food, but holidays usually bring presents!
As a first time mom, everyday is a learning experience for me and my daughter. She's about a year and a half, which is odd cause I swear it was yesterday that I was walking around my block carrying this big baby-filled belly.
