|Playing with Brinley|
McKenna is almost four years old!
McKenna’s interest in food is very low these days. She is much, much more interested in basically everything else. She pretty much eats barely enough to sustain herself it seems. She also much, much prefers fruits and vegetables over all other foods, so she spends most of her eating time and energy on those, which is fabulous, but I can’t help but wonder how she makes it to the next meal without carbs or protein to get her there 🙂
I also often think someday I need to do a toddler/preschooler diet and exercise program. Eat very little and run from task to task all day long.
I have started cutting nap time more and more. I didn’t love the either mischievous or emotional sides, so I decided to try no naps for a while and see if she could adjust. She is much better now that she has gotten used to no naps. She still has naps some days when I can tell she needs it.
Nothing interesting to report here.
McKenna’s unending love and patience for Brinley continues to amaze me. She is also usually great with Brayden and Kaitlyn, so I guess this is one of her gifts and talents. I have observed, however, that she will often pull the “younger sibling” card with Brayden and Kaitlyn and start to cry to get her way. They both do not like crying and will pretty much give in immediately.
