To say what I know about the number 3 can be a story to remember. My son is a God-given, adorable angel and I’m seeing him enter into his 4th year. Now that his 3rd year is over, I know what number 3 means to me. It’s so much a reflection of love and fun.
Here’s what it is:
- Cutting a rubber ball with a knife into two equal halves as if trying a MasterChef masterclass technique of cutting an orange.
- Doodling and continuing to doodle till it resembles a bunch of sea weed and mosquitoes and calling it “Mummy”.
- I suppose this one has to be the national flag of his dreamy fairyland.
- Drawing eggs in every form, the latest was an omlette with the black center presumed to be the yolk.
- Chortling when I make a point (That’s when I forget the point).
- Sneaking into the other room to have a try with the new gagdet.
- Folding his clothes with his tiny dexterous hands.
- Dropping off washed clothes as an act of trying to help with the laundry.
- Wanting to wear his Lightning McQueen shirt for five days in a row and still looking forward to wearing it again.
- Asking if anyone needs a glass of Cactus juice (after watching “Sheriff Callie” on Disney Junior)
- Playing memory games with Playing cards.
- Talking to his superhero TreeFu Tom in his sleep.
- Mimicking Superhero’s power moves with all enthusiasm.
- Rinsing his undies and asking for a hand to twist them to squeeze out the water.
- Drawing beautifully on a wrinkled sheet of paper (something to be thrown into the garbage).
- The list is endless. Innocence is charming and what is even more innocent is his baby eyes that do not lie. This is what 3 means to me.
Wanting to reminisce more wonderful moments let alone grumpy mummy days which follows after repeated failed attempts of putting him to bed and also included a sign of a day well-spent if my kid can get as messy as possibly can, remembering the fact that his pants were just bought yesterday.
(Shh) * My son said he had drawn a jellyfish, snake, snail & swordfish and many others. Can you find them.
