Being Three

Being three and a bit means life is pretty good, most of the time. You still have an afternoon nap, even when you protest. You get to have baby cinos with Mum at the cafe, walk in the park, make great constructions from the art and craft box, lick the beaters when a cake is being made, play dress ups all day, dance, sing and laugh. You can jump on the trampoline, play on the swing, visit all the family pets while the big kids are at school, water the vegetable garden (and everything nearby), watch PlaySchool, help out with the shopping, the ‘jobs’ and cleaning the house. You can help cut the carrot and cucumber when we make a salad, you can talk to everyone who calls by, you alert us all when a new text message comes in, the phone rings or an email pings. You can work and iPhone, an iPod and an iPad. You ask after everyone when they come home at the end of the day, you can say grace, thank God for this”happily family thank you for this lovely day”. You are only three and a bit but you know so much about this little world.
