Here comes the questions that I will always try to answer, the expression of individuality, the favorite color has been decided and she's sticking to it! Guess what mom, it's green and it doesn't matter how much I'd perfer it pink. Miss Em is already 4 year-old! She is already in her stage between toddler and young child. The infamous let me try it myself, amazing me with how smart she is, teaching how to react to situations that would typically tick her off, kind of moments.
Attitudes are forming at this stage. Mannerisms are starting to set in and limits will be tested. At this point, I am grateful that teaching Miss Em to say "No thank you." was a priority for her vocabulary. When a picky three year old says "I don't want it!" to almost every other thing u offer her, it starts to sound a little rude. The whine that comes with those four little words is still a shock. Well it was important to remind her "When we don't want something we say, no thank you." became my response. Now everyday she's learning something new. I even see her helping me remind her sisters to use their manners too. Start using no thank you and talk the way that is expected from the child, too and around the child.
Children have different temperaments and every child is an individual. They all express themselves differently with their own personalities. Watching the transformation from baby to toddler, toddler to child, child to teenager, is a blessing. I've truly been blessed to be able to watch all my children meet their first milestones!
