Yup, more snow photos… Early this morning I woke up and saw that our yard was completely covered in white again. When I opened Poppy’s blinds she exclaimed “It snowed, AGAIN!?” in this town we all get pretty excited about snow and post a lot of photos of it 😉
Tonight is Poppy’s first night sleeping in her big girl bed, I just tucked her in and she looks sooo tiny in that “big” twin bed. It’s so weird and great watching her turn into a big girl, tonight as we ready a story in bed her name was written in it and she pointed to each letter spelled out “P-O-P-P-Y”. After we closed her door we went into her old bedroom, the nursery which we’re now getting ready for baby boy, and it felt weird that we’re at the end of that being Poppy’s room. We were bracing ourselves for the feeling of going into her room the first night she’s moved out.
As Poppy nears 3 it’s fun to see her grow up but it’s also super challenging dealing with a 3 year old. She has a pretty good dose of attitude, and a strong will. We feel like we’re correcting or disciplining her over and over all day long. Whether it’s asking her to say the sentence again with “please” for the 1000th time, taking 15 minutes to walk out the door because she’s glaring me in the eyes instead of putting her shoes on, or enduring the tears of I don’t want to eat this for breakfast/lunch/dinner. It’s exhausting, which of course any parent of a 3 year old knows. I just ordered the book No Drama Discipline for us to get some fresh perspective, if you have other suggestions of resources you enjoyed for this age feel free to share them 🙂
Our dog, Sid, goes bonkers in the snow, he LOVES it. Leaping and sprinting all over the place and then choking up all the snow he shoved into his mouth while burying his face in it.
