Oh hi, world.
Remember me? Probably not. But now that my daughter has gone off to college, I figured I'd regale you with years' old stories about her.
OK. Maybe not college. But she is going to be 3 in three weeks, and I'm FREAKING THE HECK OUT.
I have no idea how that happened. But there are great things about being nearly 3.
1) Diapers and pull-ups are back ups. She's pretty fully potty trained now, so my days of back of the car diaper changes and those moments of sheer panic when I can't find the wipes are about over.
2) I can take her to the movies.
3) She talks. We have full on conversations. And they go something like this:
"Mommy, where are my glass slippers?"
I look around. There are sneakers, crocs, and glitter shoes. I figured this was a gimme.
"Here you go," I said, handing her the glitter shoes.
"THOSE ARE NOT MY GLASS SLIPPERS, MOMMY!"
OK. So I try the crocs.
"Those are your glass slippers, Mommy-Cinderella. Put them on!"
I looked at the size 8 (toddler) stride rites. Probably not going to fit.
"I think these are too small."
Moment of reflection....
"They are too small mommy. You're the step sister."
So many books...
