Three is kind of a magical age to me. My three-year-old can say so much, recall things I didn't even know she heard, yet also drive me insane with tantrums that come out of nowhere or insisting she do things herself even when she doesn't know how. I try and take a deep breath and remember the funny things she says that make me forget all about my less-than-patient moments. Here are some interesting things Ruby has been saying lately…
"Pablo Picasso liked to make things blue." (I think she learned that from this book.)
"Do little boys have little penises and big boys have big penises?" (Um, where do I start with that answer?)
"No pictures please!" (…as she waves her hands in front of her face with a smirk.)
"Daddy, you look hancy!" (I think she means handsome + fancy.)
"I want to have some nuts. Can I eat acorns like squirrels?"
In the middle of something very ordinary like taking a bath or going grocery shopping…
"Mama…I love you." (That one never gets old)
P.S. I snapped this blurry photo with my phone the other morning as I was attempting to get Ruby dressed for school. She was running around in her PJ's insisting that she needed to wear multiple things on her head before she could get dressed. And yes, our bed frame is still wrapped in plastic because I can't decide what to get, hence I decided to just let it sit there on the floor.
