She’s 2. There’s not a lot I expect her to understand, but there are some things I expect her to realize.
She needs to realize that when we freak out every time she sits on Elijah like she’s “riding a horse” it’s because it’s a bad thing!
She needs to realize that climbing in his crib in the middle of the night to see if he’s sleeping is NOT ok.
I know she’s only 2, but how to I keep her from killing Elijah! Every time I turn around I swear she’s sitting on him, or trying to pick him up by his head, or in his crib…sitting on him or waking him up. We’ve tried time out, a swat on the toosh, a discussion as to how it could hurt him, and even some moments of pure freakout! I’m out of ideas.
Also things I’d like advice on…
We’d like her to realize that lifting your leg to see where the pee comes from while peeing makes a mess on the floor…and you get in trouble.
We’d like her to learn to watch where she’s going (she will have stitches before she is 3). She is SO clumsy!
We’d like her to stop standing behind doors and subsequently being hit with them or tearing her foot up under them when they are opened. Jordan why are you crying? Oh you ran into the front of the fridge…again.
<--- Jordan vs. Door
We’d like her to stay potty trained and not be perfect one day and have an accident an hour the next.
We’d like her to learn that copying Taylor is not cute, especially when it’s the bad habits, it’s just annoying.
Do I just fee like Taylor was much easier, or was Taylor in fact MUCH easier?
However, there are some SUPER cute thing Jordan does that I find irresistible!
Jordan does a “stuck” face. I have to try and get it on video for you!
She repeats you in the cutest way ever! Example:
Me: Jordan What is this (hold up movie)
Me: Are you just yelling things?
Jordan: YELLING THINGS!! YAAAY
She’s a cuddler; Grandma calls her Lover Girl. She gives the best hugs and loves giving kisses.
She is the most polite child I know. She always says please, thank you, and you’re welcome.
She asks for high fives, and if you don’t give her one (usually because my hands are full) she’ll give herself one.
She loves to help. She gladly throws away diapers for me, or puts dishes in the sink, or even brings me things for Elijah, like wipes, when I forget them.
I LOVE that kid!
