My two year old is asleep. When she wakes up, she’ll be three. Well, not technically until 2:45 p.m., but that’s a technicality. Lauren has been in this world for 1,095 days. When she is 30 it will be 10,957 days. All day today, I thought of what those next 9,862 days will bring. It is kind of mind boggling, especially when it makes me stop to think that I will 62. I think I stick to the next year when I wonder. So here is what I wonder about the next 366 (2012 is a leap year remember)…
…I wonder if she’ll be going pee pee on the potty full time. Yes, I know this will happen, but it seems like a long way off as we are in the potty training trenches.
…I wonder if she will know all the letters of the alphabet. She already knows m, d, c, j, r, g and l.
…I wonder if her counting pattern will change from, “one, two, tree, pive, beleven”
…I wonder if she’ll still dip her hot dogs in ranch. My guess is yes.
…I wonder if she’ll still tickle the phone when she is talking to her daddy.
…I wonder if she’ll still call my dad “Hampa”.
…I wonder if we’ll still share a bowl of Lucky Charms on weekend mornings.
…I wonder if she will still want to take her Bunny Bunny with her where ever she goes.
…I wonder if she will still want to watch Wow Wow Wubbsy every night before she goes to bed.
…I wonder if she’ll ever pick up the toy room by herself.
…I wonder if she’ll ever add the word “with” to her sentences, although I love to hear “Mommy, I lay you?” when she comes in my room in the morning.
…I wonder when she will stop thinking she is being sneaky when she takes my pop can and drinks it “all gone” when it was already empty.
…I wonder when she will sleep later than me.
…I wonder if her hair will be long enough to donate to Locks of Love.
…I wonder if she can get any cuter.
…I wonder if I can love her any more.
On the last day of two, she got to hang out and play with Lexi. We had a party with Grammy and Hampa, Mommy Juju and Uncle Ry, the boys, Lexi, Aunt ‘inda and Uncle Joe and Aunt ‘ouann and Uncle Nyle. I went back in and gave her that last two year old kiss five times…just because I could.
