First of all, if you read my post yesterday (thank you guys for reaching out on that one), then you know we've been having some issues at school and such. Well I'm proud to say that today, she had ZERO issues. Her teacher actually told me today that BG's main problem is that she's the most "mature" one in the class. That she's a bit ahead in colors, letters, numbers, and shapes and so she gets bored. And a bored kiddo is never a good thing. So today, they gave her a project of writing her letters while the others worked on something. It did the trick. She stayed busy and she didn't have any discipline issues. Yay for good days.
She still prefers not to get dirty. She fell down the other day and I thought she was going to have a panic attack over the mud on her hands. She's also slightly dramatic. She'll come running at you screaming bloody murder because she saw a fly.
She's slightly bossy. She got mad today because her shovel kept hitting her. The shovel she was holding. Then she got mad at the wind for messing up her hair and tried to tell it to stop. She is such a girl.
She likes to tell us that she's funny. Which is cute. Until she's getting in trouble and she pops up with "but at least I'm funny" which always makes us laugh.
She is Miss Independent to a T. She's at the point now where we can ask her to go get dressed and she can pretty much do it all on her own. Buttons are tough, but the rest? she's got. She brushes her teeth, does her potty business, and brushes her hair (though I still prefer to do that) on her own. She is so dang grown.
She is still in full on Princess mode. She likes having her hair braided because she thinks it's Princess hair. She likes dresses and dress up and Princess movies. She is all girl.
She is a Daddy's girl through and through but I'm her best friend. Which makes my Mama heart so happy. I'll take it.
She went through a period where she constantly asked the difference between what boys and girls could do. She was obsessed with the differences. I think we've finally convinced her that girls can do anything boys can. Except pee standing up. But when I told her that she said "but I can pee in the grass like boys can". I've taught her life necessities for sure.
She's funny. I know I've already said that but y'all, she is so funny. She knows it too. She'll do random things like run into a room naked and start dancing just to get a rise out of people (we're working on keeping her clothes on!). She loves to make people laugh and she thrives on it. If you start laughing at her, you'll just egg her on. And girl can go for days.
She earns an allowance now and she thinks it's so cool. She puts her plate up after dinner, cleans her room up, and makes sure her dirty clothes go in the hamper. If she does that, she gets a dollar. She's already learned that one dime goes to church and one to her savings. I love seeing her pick these things up already. It's small, but it's a HUGE start.
She likes for us to lay down with her at night and if I do, she always ask for "the Beatles song". Her favorite song is still "Call Me Maybe" and the other night when she and Mr. P went to the Father/Daughter dance, that was the first song she heard to which she let out a little shriek and got to moving.
Dora is still her favorite but Strawberry Shortcake and Tinkerbell are now heavy in rotation. She's given up the WonderPets and Backyardigans almost completely which makes me sad because those seemed more babyish. :(
She's getting taller and skinnier by the day and the baby chub is disappearing with a quickness. I love how much she's changing and growing but it's still hard on my Mama heart to see how big she's getting.
I could talk about her all day every day. She is by far the coolest person ever. And while I know there will be scary parts of age three, so far, I'm totally looking forward to it.
