Energizer Bunny's Mommy Reports: Is it just my 3 year old?

Jul 24, 2009

Is it just my 3 year old?

It's as if Bunny girl was conditioned to get into "never take a yes or a no for an answer...get all the details and pull out all the Ws to help" mode as soon as she hit 3!
Now that she's nearing the 3 and a half year mark, it seems as if..
the Whys only get longer,
Whats become more pronounced and
the Whens get more 'sing song'-ed. (Sigh!)

Can I be honest? I love the questions. I think they're super cute BUT when they're asked to someone else NOT me!

Now we've graduated to a new level. Bunny girl tries to justify why she believes something is the way she sees it by starting her sentence with " Wait. Let me tell you...." and off she goes. Most times she has the knack of firing off her weapons just when its bedtime. (Why do kids think that's an ok time? WHY OH WHY?????)

Last night.....

Silence as Hubby and I slowly drift closer and closer to dreamland... But wait! There's some shifting between the sheets......A finger is in the air, slowly tracing out imaginary pictures and quiet whispering can be heard....

Hubby- "SSSHHHHHH Go to sleep!"

Bunny girl- "There's some dirt in my noses"

Great!! I do my best impression of an inert Mummy! (rather an inert snickering Mummy, if there ever can be one!)

Hubby- " It's not noses. It's nostrils!"

Bunny girl- "Nostrils?" (In a funny sing song way)

Hubby- "Yes the holes in your nose are called nostrils."

Bunny girl (stuffing a finger into each nostril by turn) firmly states " This is not a nostril!"

Frustrated Hubby "Then what is it"

Bunny girl- " Wait. Let me tell you"


Bunny girl- " The holes are round right?"

Exasperated Hubby- 'Right!"

Bunny girl- "So they're called Circles!....Not nostrils!"

Exasperation, frustration and inertia all go flying out of the window as Hubby and I giggle ourselves awake.

Now we have 3 wide awake beings, tracing imaginary pictures in the air!!!

Question: Is it just my 3 year old?... Or is yours like mine? ;>

Haha! Mine is like that, too. As the mom of 4 I've learned 3's are worse than 2's. It's uphill until they reach 12 then downhill till they get married. My 3 year old is currently walking around the house with her Tinkerbell bike helmet and one knee pad. Embrace these memories for they'll be gone in the blink of an eye.

My daughter turned three in June--some days, I wish she would STOP TALKING, just for FIVE minutes! And, yes, she asks why about two million times a day! It can be frustrating, but I know I'm blessed to have her in my life asking me questions and driving me nuts. Some parents aren't so lucky and would give anything just to hear their kids ask why. She drives me bananas with her constant chatter, but I wouldn't trade it for ANYTHING :)

I think I've had very similar conversations with my kids. It's not just 3 year olds, my 4 year olds do the same thing.
