Joys and Woes of 3-Year-Olds

These are some things I love about having a three-year-old:

  1. The developmental leaps they make in such short time periods.
  2. The way they are always making up stories. (“I have a chocolate syrup shop that is open for business. Doesn’t that sound nice?”)
  3. How their sense of humor gets more sophisticated.

These are some things I have come to accept about having a three-year-old:

  1. They have favorite foods that they demand to eat on a daily basis (even though in my house they might get to eat them more often but not daily).
  2. They want to do as much as possible themselves.
  3. They like to make decisions for themselves about everything including the shape their sandwich is cut into and what color straw they use with their chocolate milk.

These are things I am still trying to accept about having a three-year-old:

  1. They incessantly repeat things over and over even after you have acknowledged their question or observation.
  2. When they are tired they hone in on one thing and will not let it go.
  3. Sometimes they don’t know what they want, and nothing you do will please them.
