What Time Is It?
The life of a four year old is confusing. Alexa is now starting to realize that there is time. This is a hard concept for her to understand. We went to a friend's house on Sunday to play some games. We were supposed to be there at 7pm and she began asking what time it was at about 3:00. Finally at 4:30 after the millionth time of asking what time it was I told her to look at the digital clock and when it said 7:00 we could go. She was looking at the clock on the microwave at the time and she said okay I will wait. She proceeded to put her head in her hands and watched the clock. She is trying so hard to be like an adult. She was so excited when we finally got to leave that she could hardly contain herself. Maybe along with the lint for Christmas I will buy her a watch.
This is such a fun age. Yesterday she made "presents" all day for her friends. She loves to cut things out of the newspaper for friends and draw them pictures. She dances all the time and she talks a mile a minute. Last night I was laughing so hard at her babbling that I just had to grab her face and say stop! She has also had a lot of friends move so last night she was stalling at bedtime so she said,"mom, I only have two friends left."
A few more fun things she has said the past few days.
"It smells like brocolli out here."
"I love fish!"
"Mom you need a bow in your hair. Wear one tomorrow okay?"
