She won't be two until the 21st of September, but Kinsley is already proving to be near!
She is ALL OVER THE PLACE...ALL THE TIME! It is like the Energizer Bunny times 100! She constantly has to be doing something. She is a very, very, very busy toddler! And MISCHIEVOUS like all get out! I thought girls were supposed to be better than boys...YEAH RIGHT, and I had TWO BOYS at the same time!
We wandered how this week would go with school starting. She has gotten quite attached to the boys this summer. She didn't miss a beat. She had been going into their room every morning, turning on their TV and talking to them. For some reason, on Wednesday, she came out and it didn't occur to her to visit them. They were gone to school; she was off to the races. She never stopped and had a smile on her face all day. We finally asked at lunch time where they were at, and she put her hands up and said "no" like I don't know. But it didn't seem to phase her a bit.
And she hasn't let up this week. Yesterday morning, she got up at 6:50 before they left. She was ready to go and stood on the front porch and waved as they left. Then, ran into the house smiling and playing!
Today, she got into the toilet and played with the cling on stamp things I bought to keep them cleaner. She smells like a pine forest because of it. They fascinate her for some reason. She dumped a full box of wet wipes out, took them all apart, and started flushing them. Thankfully, it was one at a time and Mommy heard the toilet getting flushed more than it should.
She rode in the boys' booster seat today all buckled in because she didn't want to ride in her seat. I later figured out it is only because she can undo the seat belt (something her brothers still struggle with) without flinching and gets out to explore. That landed her in her car seat!
Right as I type this, she has climbed on my lap and is now sitting on my desk smiling at me! She is grabbing anything within reach and it is so hard to be mad at a toothy grinned, pig tail wearing, little girl as she reaches over with her sticky little hand and gives you a great big kiss!
On a sweet note, she has learned out to give bear hugs this week! Used to, when we hugged her, she would just take it...Now she puts her arms around your neck and squeezes as tight as a toddler can! So sweet and cute! What is not cute or sweet is that she is now shredding my stack of post-its one by one...Gotta go!
