Little M informed me last week that she will no longer be wearing choo choo train panties, or fairy panties. From now on, she will only wear Spiderman panties. Oh yes, she did. And I think she means it. Unfortunately.
Little M has figured out boys and girls, is working on boys being a “he,” and girls being a “she,” and has started to figure out family relationships…the other day, the husband was explaining what a father was, and that she is his daughter. “I’m YOUR daughter, daddy?” He replied yes, and then she melted his heart with “you like a daughter, daddy?” He LOVES a daughter!
We went to a party on Saturday for some friends who are moving away, whom we are going to miss, even though we don’t get to see them as much as we would like… and little M had us cracking up all the way there asking “where’s the potty (party) at?” and “I’m ready to potty!”
Little M has just recently started making up her own songs. We discovered this last week when we were driving somewhere with little M singing in the backseat. We were trying to figure out what song she was singing, but the tune was one we didn’t know, and we couldn’t make out the words until she sang “Ooooh, yaaay…I seeee a trash truck!”
We find ourselves reassuring little M constantly that we will always return from wherever we go… This weekend little M was going downstairs, and she came to me, and said “don’t worry, mommy. I always come back to you. We are family.”
Along the same line, little M has been going up and down stairs, playing in her room and the basement…without me!! Mind you, she is only usually gone for a few minutes, before she comes to check on where I am, but it is still a big deal for us!
Little M caught the dancing bug at cousin Quinn’s wedding, and asks several times a day for me to turn on music so we can dance…so that is precisely what we do. The girl has got some moves!
