This week I’ve found myself later home from work than normal. Not in any way working late just later than normal. My slightly longer days haven’t been much fun for me but have made a big difference to my daughter.
Yesterday she got upset several times during the day asking for me. Today she had her weekly day at Playgroup and for the first time ever she became upset there too.
During the past week Moo has started talking about Christmas. We don’t know where she’s got the information from (she’s only 2 so we presume she can’t remember from last year) but it’s now very much on her mind.
“Father Christmas down chimney bring presents”, “give him beer, reindeer eat carrots” and “Father Christmas says Ho, Ho, Ho.” are just some of the gems she comes out with.
Moo is showing her first signs of wanted to verbally go head to head with us in an argument.
Here she is ready for her fireworks yesterday.
Most days now at some point she will, rather aggressively announce “I love YOU!”
To which of course we echo her with an “I love you.”
This appears to stir her as she unleashes a louder “I love YOU!”
This can continue can continue for quite some time before one of us buckles, if only our “arguments” could remain like this forever!
