Bug turns three today. Three is so strange. I remember three as being my best year of childhood. It was just so much damn fun. I hope Bug feels that way about her third year. She says and does some really adorable things. She calls eyebrows, eyebrellas. She calls knives, sharks (because they can bite 'cha!). She says "Shiver me timbers!" and "Ahoy mateys!" and "Kiss my grits!" and "Exsqueeze me please" when we pass someone in the aisle of a store. She says, "Happy 'scuse me" instead of "May I be excused" when she is done with dinner. She knows all of the numbers in our address, but not in the right order. She will tell you today she is "free years old." She learned about Band-Aids and tape in the same week and now thinks mommy can fix anything. Staples and glue are going to blow her mind. She is so brave outside with the other kids if she falls down or gets hurt, but inside, a too-sharp tone can bring on the tears. When she cries, she asks for a tissue, blows her nose, then throws the tissue away. Everything isn't all better, but close. She loves to eat M&Ms, mandarin oranges, pizza, pepperoni (but not on her pizza), and her daddy's bread, waffles and scones, but not his blueberry muffins. But just plain blueberries, she can eat two pints a week or more. She is my oxygen, my young pair of eyes. I love that little girl so much it hurts some days. Happy day sweet Bug. Enjoy your purple door!
