CHATS WITH A THREE-NAGER

Highfields' Own - - Opinion - BY BINDY SCOTT, MODERNWIFELIFE31 BLOG­GER

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.
