CHATS WITH A THREE-NAGER
Hello Highfields friends!
I’m Bindy Scott, and this is my first column for Highfields’ Own.
You may remember me from the February/march edition or you may read my blog, but if you don’t know me, hi!
I’m a local mum, I live with my husband and our two children, my three-and-a-half year old daughter and five-and-a-half month old son in Meringandan. In my spare time I write Modernwifelife31. Now, lets talk about three-year-olds. Aren’t they the funniest, most curious and honest little people! This age makes me so happy, but at the same time it makes me need to take a deep breath and count to ten multiple times a day.
Everyone always talks about the ‘terrible twos’, but most people fail to mention the ‘three-nager’.
While this age can be full-on with the sassiness, wanting things their own way and craving independence, I still think it’s so fascinating and wonderful.
I especially love my daughters constant thirst for knowledge and witnessing her mind explore every topic imaginable.
We have such sweet, deep and often hilarious conversations, such as her thought process on what makes someone skinny... being the fact they have skin.
Another day I caught her measuring the cat with a ruler, from which she promptly decided that our cat was six months old.
One more hilarious conversation was where she was adamant she would grow up and marry her baby brother.
She was a bit heartbroken to find out that they would both have to find other people to fall in love with and marry.
I have had a number of friends with three-year-old girls have similar marriage conversations, so I think it must be the age! What’s the funniest thing your kids have said? Tell me on my social media listed below.
