I haven’t said a lot about Rosemary on the blog lately, so here is what she is up to:
Pretending to read books. I don’t remember Atticus doing this very much. She begs me to read books to her and will sit still for 15 minutes or so (a record for her) looking at books. Her favorites include Gerda Muller’s season books, those touchy-feely books (aka Pat the Bunny),
Making huge, huge, huge messes. Crying until I give her the cracker bag (so she can get them herself) and then dumping out all the crackers. Writing on the walls with whatever she can find (including makeup).
Saying “mine” every thirty seconds.
Going down the slides that are for kids 5 years and older.
Putting on other people’s shoes and walking around.
Playing in the bath for an hour or more.
Taking four baths a day.
Falling down and hurting herself because she is imitating her brother.
Putting together little sentences like “Stop atticus.”
Pushing other children (someone made a big deal out of this when she did it once and she hasn’t forgotten).
Screaming at the top of her lungs when she doesn’t get what she wants.
Giving lots of hugs and kisses.
Saying “I love you.”
