three things jllian does which drive me nuts

1. Skips naps. This week, she only napped once, which was today. You know what happened on day four of no nap? swear words. (To be clear, not said to Jillian.)

2. Packs bags. If she gets her hands on a gift bag, grocery bag, backpack, or the like, she will fill it to the brim with random stuff from around the house.

3. Fakes inability. For instance, she acts like she can't get her boots on. Mind you, she wears the same boots she wore last year when she was one and a half and used to put them on ALL the time. In fact, this Summer, I had to hide them because she insisted on wearing them. And now???? faker.

The 3-year-old boy I watch does the faking thing. It didn't start until after his baby sister was born 8 months ago. Perhaps there's something going on with them not being the baby anymore?

hmmmmmm.......hording.:)) She carried puzzle pieces into her room, they were tucked by her bed, hidden there kinda. I don't know, everything she does is so cute, I can hardly stand it.(I realize I'm saying this because I have NO children 24/7.) Loved her little scene of kissing, waving bye,bye, taking off & back again within seconds to do it all again. I wish I could say drop her off any time for a reprieve!! :)) Faking.....hmmmmmm yes maybe since little Phoebe gets everything done for her and the attention that comes with that....?? I'll pray for better naps for all involved,especially for February!!

Sounds just like Abraham! Especially 2 & 3. The bag thing is really getting to be too much...

I hear you loud and clear---it's exhausting. With Andrew it's his "my do it" phase. He fakes the inability all the time--hang in there. Love ya :)

It took you 4 days?

Jenna said...

oh...well...to be honest, it was the amount of f-bombs in one sentence that made it noteworthy. i guess if the "Judge and Jury" already knows, i can tell y'all.

unfortunately it doesn't take THAT much to move me to swearing.

As to your above comment, Jenna, I am glad to know (but embarrassed to say)...I am not the only one....

These things that Jillian does sound cute to me, only because I don't have to deal with them...:)
