What is it about 3 year olds? I feel like the time from 3 to 3.5 is the era of stupid human tricks. No later that 3 days after her birthday she cut her own hair and balled up the pieces next to the scissors. "Momo did you cut your hair?" "No, I didn't." "Then what is this hair here?" "I don't know." Yeah right. Honesty is a learned behavior.
Momo is rather attached to daddy as I believe I have mentioned before. When daddy takes call we always have to take two cars everywhere we go because if he has to leave in a hurry he's really gotta go. Momo does not like this arrangement at all and often whines about it. So this Sunday as we were preparing to go to mass she started saying, "Hey Dad, I am on call." At first, we didn't think much about it but when we tried to put her in the car she simply explained that "I need to go with Dad because I am on call." After Mass when he tried to put her in my car she set him straight, "But dad, I am STILL on call!"
Did I mention that every day dad is gone when she wakes up she asks where he is? I always answer that he's at work and she breaks into tears. Every. Single. Day. It is short lived thank goodness, but I am not sure what I am going to do when he heads to his new job in less than 3 weeks and we are left behind for the duration of the summer. YIKES.
My children have talking body parts. Often their tummies are telling them they "need candy" or "strawberries." So Momo has caught on. Today at an ever so healthy dinner of Jim.my Jo.hns (don't judge, we have baseball at 6 and soccer at 7) she had been told she had to eat her sandwich before she could open her chips. Well, naturally her body started communicating to her. "Mom, my knees are telling me I need chips." Nice try.
