This little angel is at this very moment climbing up on a stool, reaching into the cupboard, and getting the box of fruit snacks down all by herself…… (me stepping away for a moment)….. and now she is screaming and stomping her feet because I put them away (she already had some). I gave her some crackers, but apparently that was unacceptable! Now she’s showing me! As she opens a drawer she knows she’s not allowed in, taking my pen, calculator, and I don’t know what else, she’s running back into the living room with them! Happy 2nd birthday to my little troublemaker! I’m not entirely mean, I did make her purple blueberry pancakes in butterfly and star shapes this morning per her request!
I was up late thinking of how she would only be one year old for a few more hours. I know it’s cliche, but it does go by too fast! She was always an early mover and very independent (she also screamed at me this morning for trying to help her put her boots on under her poofy Easter dress she wanted to wear today. Excuuuuuse me!!) so I feel like I was cheated out of baby time! No I’m not quite ready for another. I have my hand full enough for now!
She’s the girliest toddler I’ve ever met and it certainly doesn’t come from me! I was always more of a tom-boy. I remember my mom begging me to wear a dress, but rarely was I seen in anything but jeans and tees. If I couldn’t climb trees or slide across mud, it wasn’t for me! This dainty girl is a mystery. Totally her Daddy’s little girl! It’s going to be a fun, interesting journey with this one!
