T in the corridor of the cinema, waiting for her best-friend F.
Last Monday, T and her best-friend F went to see their first movie – ‘Spicable Me 2 (That’s how she pronounces it). It went really well. They were both really good, especially F who just sat most of the time on his Dad’s lap. T on the other hand, kept moving from her chair to my lap, to her Dad’s lap. At one point, she was also standing. The important thing is that both kids really loved it. Looks like we’ll be spending a lot of our time in the cinema now ….
On another milestone, we’ve gotten rid of T’s cot-bed and she has now a little girl’s big bed which is really a day-bed with a trundle (when set up the bed becomes a super-king sized bed). She calls herself a big girl now, not a baby anymore – after all, she’ll be turning 3 on the 26th! How did that happen? How did my little bundle of joy/whinges grow into a little girl? Is there any possibility of slowing things down just a little bit?
She already uses the word forever like a teenager, she’s turning 3 not thirteen! She argues back, slams doors, sulks and declares I want new shoes! At night though, she turns back to being my little baby who wants mommy by her side, she tells me I NEED you to sleep beside me Mommy. I guess some things will never change, at least, not yet, and I’m okay with that too. So yes, I still sleepwalk between her room and our room in the middle of the night when she calls for me. And admittedly most nights, I wake up on her bed.
Have a great weekend!
