Abbey went to bed last night a two-year-old, and woke up this morning THE BIG 3. In addition to impulsivity, volume control, and endless negotiating and demanding, she’s been showing other preschool-like abilities and behaviors for a while now, like communicating more effectively, speaking in full sentences, making up stories, playing pretend, and using the potty, to name a few. But now, it’s definitely official. I no longer have a “Toddler in tow” – I am a mother to a preschooler and an infant.
Which really doesn’t change things, parenting-wise or blog wise. . . but it’s just another milestone on the journey. Another year gone by. . . another year of joyful challenges up ahead.
