“Maggie, you are supposed to be at the table for breakfast,” I remind my (almost) 3-year-old this morning as I came downstairs with her little sister.
She boldly announces to me from her playroom, “Mamma, I got Seberal things to do today!” She continues with her “list” as she reluctantly follows me into the dinning room, “I got to Play wit my rug; get dressed, take a nap, get a pencil, get up, eat breakfast, go back to nap, go to Izzie’s house (her sister). I got seberal fings to do in my kitchen.”
Crack’n me UP!
“Be careful little eyes what you see (read). Be careful little ears what you hear. Be careful little feet where you go.” My prayer that I will breathe life into children daily, not tearing them down. They not only repeat, verbatim, words and phrases we use or read to them but also quickly pick up on and reproduce attitudes, moods, and concepts being display before them. This “concept” has not only come from, I’m sure, me and my crazy “to-dos” but also from a simple silly book in our home (from my hub’s childhood), “Frog and Toad Together” by Arnold Lobel.
Even better than this…she’s got a shadow who is watching my every move AND her big sis!
What have you caught your kiddos saying/acting out that came directly from you or something you’ve exposed them to? I love these kind of stories!
