Ketchup is essential. A food group of its own accord. [We've gone through more ketchup in the one week than in one year total.]
Boo-boo's [safety blanket] and thumbs, no matter how
gross dirty, are an essential part of life.
Chicken-fries and nuggets are real food.
4-year-old love is unconditional.
Counting to 3 works. [Regardless of whether you have no backup plan as to what you will really do if you reach the number 3.]
Music is universal. [***radio playing*** "hey! How can you have the same music as my dad does?!"]
A hug, a kiss and a "I love you" are the only vital things necessary.
Sharing is relative.
Amazingly, 4-year-olds, if given a choice, will usually make the right one.
Do make their own bed and pick up their room daily without being asked. [Will also voluntarily clean & make Uncle's and Mintie's too.]
They are picky about what constitutes cool clothes.
Prefer quiet time alone now and then.
Kids fight. When it's over, it's done and they are best friends all over again.
Will try anything once. [You only have that "once" to get it right or it's done forever.]
Imagination, as are questions, are limitless without boundaries.
Life is about colors [pink], princesses and laughter.
Wishing she were ours permanently.
