What you can learn from a three year old.

(well, from my three year old, anyway)

1.) Bubbles trump everything. IMG_1922
2.) Being socially open and friendly is a gift. IMG_8963
3.) Listening is a necessity and can be a learned skill.(sometimes we need to admit we are hearing and not listening)IMG_6067
4.) Patience. Patience. Patience.
5.) He CAN reach that phone/toilet paper roll/glass of water/key ring/doorknob/stack of important papers.
6.) On a related note, don’t EVER underestimate him.

Underestimate me?? Pshaw.

Underestimate me?? Pshaw.


7.) Everything can be made better with the right song.
Yup. He's singing.

Yup. He’s singing.


8.) Slow down. When he takes each stair at a painstakingly slow pace, it’s a reminder that it’s okay to slow my roll. Let him turn the light switch on and off a few times. Take your time on the steps. Whatever it is will wait.
9.) Hugs rule. DSC_4041
10.) Birthdays are pretty great. Even when they make mommy a little sad because you are not a little squirt anymore.
Happy Third Birthday Buddy!

    Happy happy birthday, sweet boy! And to mama and dad, too! I know what they mean when they say that it’s a little sad to not have a little squirt any longer – my little baby just turned five. It’s hard to believe. And bubbles totally trump everything.
