that 3 years goes by in the blink of an eye
the different species of all of the dinosaurs
the meaning of patience
that 3 is a preview of the teenage years…
but they are still babies in many ways
that parenthood isn’t black and white and it’s full of mistakes along the way
to not fix what’s not broken
to not stress so much about what other parents are doing and just do my thing
that moms are the center of the universe from 0-2.5 and that dads are way cooler after that
that they’ll still run to mom when they get hurt
to never underestimate a 3 year old
how innocent this age is and how I wish it could stay that way forever
that my son is my greatest teacher
how to bribe, I mean “reward”
the joys of potty training
that you’ll act like a crazy person, jumping up and down cheering, after that first poop in the potty
that the first poop was probably just a fluke
how fun and challenging and funny this age can be
that my 3 year old remembers e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g
that I should just get used to being asked “why?” a million times a day from here on out
to build in 30 extra minutes before we leave anywhere so my child can put on his own shoes “BY MYSELF”
how hard it is to let go a tiny bit more
Happy 3rd Birthday Logan! Mama loves you to the moon and back.
See what else I’ve learned in the past 3 years.
