The Many Parts of being a 2 1/2 Year Old!
For those of you that follow my Facebook, you might have seen that recently we have had 2 special people come to stay with us. One of them is my oldest son’s future wife, and the other is also a special little 2 1/2 year old. I think I have taken more pictures since her arrival. It has been like I have been able to get a ready made grandchild without having to wait for her to grow into a 2 1/2 year old. She loves Diego, Dora, Mickey Mouse club and recently we have introduced her to Peppa Pig, Rug Rats and Max and Ruby. I have to admit I am not used to having a 2 1/2 year in our home 24/7 as my husband used to do daycare; for 12 years to be exact; but they went home usually by 530pm. When we went shopping yesterday to Kohls they had a neat shopping cart that she was able to enjoy.
I did forget that she enjoys the occasional Elmo if we are out shopping; which I admit isn’t my favorite past time but for this it worked to keep her occupied. When we went to Payless I think we found her hidden love—–SHOES.
I have to say I was quite impressed how well she walked in them. She is so much fun and sometimes I have to remember to watch the world as she does. She loves Pringles chips, milk, carrot sticks, bananas, grapes, cheesey teelas (cheese tortillas), juice, her ‘special coffee- (milk with a bit of caramel syrup in it); although this is just on occasion. She loves to blow bubbles, swing and play on the playground when the weather permits. I have been able to enjoy being a parent but with my youngest almost 17 and entering her Senior year in the fall; I will say that the start of becoming a Grandma is even more fun than I expected.
