My Three Year Old Girl: Three going on twenty-three

I love my three year old daughter. I love them both of course but I wanted to talk about her for a minute. She is so much fun for me. Just like a friend who I would hang out with. She loves shoes, handbags, dresses, and having her nails done. She even sits still waiting for nail polish to dry! Did I mention she is three?? All of this aside I swear that there are times that I think she is going through puberty! I mean this is not what I would call the “terrible twos or threes” - this is butting heads with me in a way that is very different from the way she interacts with just about everyone else! She is pretty smart and does have a BIG personality but this is something else.

I am already “uncool” and a “PITA” to her. Like when I ask her to do something she does not want to she will actually roll her eyes. This is unbelievable to me! It is so interesting because she does really like hanging out with and doing stuff with me but I am the first person to hear about it when something is not to her satisfaction. This is a relationship unlike any I have even been in! I really do love doing things with her and she does usually wind up doing what I ask of her but it is not without some work. I have to work for and explain everything more than everyone else has to but I guess I do also get preference from her more often too. She is a daddy’s girl but daddy is still daddy.

It may not sound like it but I enjoy her so much because of her personality. I think it is so cute and I have learned so much from her. Particularly in the department of patience…I just am not sure if all three year old girls are like this??
