My four year old is growing into a pretty fun, pretty mischevious child. Her new obsession is jumping on the furniture and coloring on the walls with paint, or markers, or whatever else she can find.
So, that's fun.
We love Magic Erasers in my house.
Other than becoming independent in certain ways, she has also become very much an only child. She loves to whine and pretend she can't do things she can do, like change her clothes or eat dinner. So all in all, I think she is a perfectly healthy kid, hitting all of the major milestones a four year old should.
We also had another addition to our family in the last few months...his name is Jacob and he is Avery's very special friend. Jacob has been Avery's boyfriend, husband, brother, grandpa, and classmate, just depending on what we are doing. Sometimes, Jacob comes with us and sometimes he stays at home. Sometimes, he eats dinner and other times, he is in trouble and was sent to Avery's room. Sometimes, we won't hear about him all day. But Jacob is a fun addition to our lives around here - Avery has nothing if not healthy imagination and the things she says are just as funny as can be! I had a lot of imaginary friends as a kid and would pretend a lot. I love encouraging this side of her personality.
Avery has one more year of preschool before the big K. We love the school she is in and she will stay one more year. It's nice that she only goes a few hours a day, four days a week. I am not ready to give her up to a normal school schedule just quite yet. We are also planning our summer and getting excited about the water park again! We had a great time last year!
Have a great week everyone!
