Violet recently turned 3-years-old; it’s fascinating to watch her changing on an almost daily basis.
One day she’s babbling nonsense and the next she’s asking me to turn on the Billie Holiday record because she’s “so bwoo-ee-full.”
Or she’s dropping F-Bomb loudly and proudly because I just did it in response to an old lady pulling in front of our car as we drive to Kindermusik.
It got me got me to thinking about how her little mind is so much like a sponge right now and that she’s soaking up personality traits, speech patterns, and likes and dislikes of me and her dad. Which, as you’re about to see, isn’t necessarily a good thing. I’m pretty sure Dora didn’t teach her the F-Word. But, whatever. In 10 years she’ll be the opposite. Ridiculing us and ignoring us and doing everything in her power to NOT be like us, but for now, she’s trying to be just like us. Which, well, like I said, is good and bad.
