It’s a new year! This month you BOTH turn a year older.
My Dear Son: you are fiercely gaining your independence. You want to do everything yourself…get dressed, get a drink, wash your face, shampoo your hair…some of these things you can’t quite master on your own yet, but you’ll be darned if you let anyone help you! So getting dressed for pre-school in the mornings is a bit of a challenge, to say the least
You love telling everyone you are 3. And you are excited by things that make you stronger and bigger! (Note to self: must use this in order to convince you bed time is a ‘good’ thing). 😉
My not-so-little darling daughter: You have stepped up your Big Sister game this month. While your little brother has been fighting for independence, you’ve been helping everyone get through it. Helping him when (if) he asks, getting you BOTH snacks, playing cars and trucks with him (even though you would much rather play with your dolls).
I can see you trying to be like me. I don’t know if that is a good thing sometimes! I need to work on being the best mommy I can be so you can go on with your life imitating the good things
We go on frequent ‘girls’ days’. You love to go to the same restaurant just me and you. Then we go shopping And if we can swing it, you love a side trip to the movies. I cherish these moments, because I know it won’t be long until you would rather be with your friends.
I love you both to the moon and back
