|Brinley doing an activity from our
Babes,Tots, and Kids curriculum.
This is a summary for Brinley from 32.5 to 33 months old. She is 3 months shy of 3 years old.
Sleeping is good. She goes down for naps and bedtime well without much if any fighting and antics. We keep things super consistent and routine, and that helps her to not negotiate her way out of it.
Eating is pretty good. She has many meals where she eats very little so she can get back to playing, but then is hungry an hour later. I tell her that she needs to eat at her meal time.
She also has a strong affinity for sugar. Strong. What she really wants an hour later is some sugar. Cookie. Candy. Whatever. I have not had a child so obsessed with sugar before.
Playtime is going the well and the same. Dress up in a constant. She is “princess.”
Brinley really wants to go through and watch all of the princess movies. McKenna has only seen Cinderella and Frozen (at least until the last couple of weeks) because movies make her nervous. But Brinley wants them all, so they are going through and watching them. She is enjoying them.
The big story from this time period is her boundary testing. She is testing big time. She wants to know what will happen if she says no, if she stands her ground, if she continues to play after I have told her it is time to stop, if she grabs a paper off the counter and crumples it up…she wants to know it all! Time to suit up for a testing phase.
|Fun at our local amusement park. She loves riding rides.|
