Staying at Home with an Almost Three Year Old

To Ember,
Things you do at home with mom while the big kids are at school!

You and I run errands, of course. And you admire yourself and do silly faces at yourself in every mirror you find.  photo 117eresized_zps93979436.jpg

You play with your toys in your bowl of cereal. And in your cup of water. Mom says not to every single time but you know better, you know what’s fun!

You like coloring outside with chalk early in the morning. (before it gets over 100 degrees!)  photo 092e2resized_zps5cc294f8.jpg

And then pretending the chalk pieces are members of a family. Because everything can (and will) be made into a mommy and baby pair when you’re holding them!  photo 098eresized_zps4de1c5f5.jpg

A huge favorite of yours is reading books. And also putting them away. You love cleaning! (Awesome)  photo 103eresized_zps689a18ad.jpg

You LOVE to take pictures with the iPod with mommy. You bring me the iPod daily and I hold it up and you push the button to take our picture.

You ask for mommy milty (milky) when you’re sleepy. I tell you stories every time you nurse these days. You LOVE hearing made up stories. You’ll request “I want another story” as soon as one ends.

Other things you do every day that I didn’t take pictures of this week:
-Puzzles!!!! Puzzles, puzzles, and more puzzles
-Wash your hands in the bathroom all the time (your hands aren’t dirty)
-Wipe your nose over and over and put a bunch of toilet paper in the toilet (you’re not sick)
-Push a chair (or anything else you can) up to the counters/in the pantry/to the cupboards to get into stuff (food) you’re not supposed to
-Make messes with your food and drinks, every meal
-Take your clothes off
-Play really nicely by yourself, creating the cutest games and adventures with your toys πŸ™‚
-Watch some TV or Netflix (faves: Dora, Team Umizoomi, Busy Town)
