Yeah, so I’ve been neglecting my blog lately. Things have been going well. I’ve been trying to get Olivia to play board games. We’ve tried Memory for a long time, but she can’t resist the urge to mess up all the cards when they’re in their nice straight rows. So, we got out Let’s Go Fishing. She loved the game, but loved the little fishies more (and of course had to sleep with them for several nights.) Then, we tried Candyland. She had to be the red gingerbread man, but only wanted to land on the red squares because they had to “match.” So, we tried Hi Ho Cherry-O and she made up all kinds of games to play with her cherries. . .everything except the actual game. And, she carries her cherries around in their little buckets all day. She always keeps a smile on my face, that’s for sure.
I’m gearing up for her 4th birthday party. We are having a Lily party (frog theme.) Now, I’m kinda kicking myself because she has turned into a Caillou nut! I mean, I think it is her favorite show ever!! Most shows don’t always hold her attention, but she could watch Caillou all day if I let her. Regardless of the theme, she’ll enjoy it. It has really been fun because this is the first year that she truly understands birthdays and knows hers is coming up soon! She’s going to be so excited!
