You were 52 months old yesterday.
One of the many reasons this month has been busy is our recent visitor, Ms. Maggie from DC, this past weekend...
Towards the end of this month the weather cooperated enough so that we could go outside to play at the various parks. The only thing that makes you happier than doing art (or watching tv---you are VERY fond of your limited tv time) is playing outside.
Me: Lucy, please come here and put on your coat so we can go.
You: Staying where you are across the room, you call out, "Kate, come over here so we can have a race."
Me: Lucy, you may not race in here. Dr. Jason has already asked that we be quiet since someone is getting a massage. Please come here and put on your coat.
You: Completely avoiding eye contact, you call out again, "Come here Kate, let's race!"
Me: Lucy...seriously? Look at me and come here quietly or there will be no tv for you when we get home.
You: "GO!" as you start racing over to me, stomping as loudly as you can while running.
Me: Are you kidding me?! That means no tv for you.
You: WHY???!!! Will Kate get to watch tv????
Me: We're not talking about Kate and you know exactly why. Please put on your coat.
You: Loud screaming.
