According to Maddie


Life according to Maddie is very interesting, fun, sassy, unpredictable, and sometimes stressful…but so enjoyable…with Maddie everything is sweeter and a road that I have never experienced…she is just different in a good way…how she saunters through her life with a smile and a kissa…her kisses are with her neck reaching out as far as she can- tilted up head and looking for a meeting of lips preferably her brothers or dads…according to Maddie anything and everything can be fixed with a head nod smile and a shoulder shrug…she is very independent she can apply her own lotion, sunscreen and do her hair…she is a master with a hairbrush…Maddie favorite accessory besides her tooth is a purse filled with her favorite things for that moment…according to Maddie the perfect diet is Greek Yogurt and cheetos…everything else is really unnecessary…Maddie has let me know that it is her job to empty the dishwasher…she is becoming better and better at it…as we move to only plastic items in our home…according to Maddie she owns her brother and all of his time…in her world he will play or better said entertain her for hours until she is ready for a happy nappy…Maddie loves to get dressed up and show off…she is all girl and so my daughter- the daughter I thought I did not get…but surprise; she is just what I needed…wanted… just did not know it…according to Maddie signing sorry is very important and needed with most encounters with anyone…Maddie is a tad on the aggressive side….Maddie no longer believes a  high chair or car seat is necessary she thinks she is big enough to sit on a stool for dinner and help drive the car…Maddie understands that if the shoes are on and she has your hand that a walk to the park is in order...even if it is dark, raining, or just to hot....according to Maddie life does not have to be as difficult as her mother likes to make it…just keep smiling and everything else will fall into place…

  6. I was just talking to the friend of a 3 year old DS boy, we were saying how even though they are usually so good natured and calm, every one I know is a holy terror toddler! They are so mischievous, how can anyone say they are any different than any other kid!
