I attempted to do the Pinterest-y "ask your child these questions every year starting on their 3rd birthday" but it ended up going like this:
Me: "What's your favorite color?"
Sam: "Color, bolor!" (dies laughing)
Me: "What's your favorite animal?"
Sam: "Animal, banimal!" (dies laughing)
Me: "What's your favorite toy?"
Sam: "Toy, boy!" (dies laughing)
Me: *searching for the wine*
So since that didn't quite work out, I went with something different (yet still Pinterest-y).
I can't believe this boy is 3, although I also can, if that makes any sense. The beginning of 2 was sometimes difficult, and the middle and end of 2 was most definitely WHINY, but it was also full of actual conversation and seeing him begin to make connections, run faster, become braver, face-plant a lot, and understand some differences between right and wrong. I'm really looking forward to more.
