I Love This Age

I may have mentioned before, but I ♥ LOVE ♥ the 2-4 age range.
Little ones are so much fun. 
They keep you on your toes.  And they come up with the FUNNIEST things!

Take this little Miss, for example.
Oh she is a bundle of energy.


Do you notice the black streaks above her eyebrows?  Mmmhmm.  She insisted on painting them on with black eyeliner, "like mama".  I can assure you, my browliner actually makes it onto my brows.


She comes up with the funniest things, Miss Kam does.  Lately, when she's thirsty, she's been saying: "I'm drinky".  Drinky. Not thirsty.  Nope.  Drinky.  And she's always humbry {hungry}.  Until she's taken a bite of her meal.  Then she's stuffed.  The other day my mom joked that Kameryn is hungry and stuffed about 100 times daily.


Little Miss is really into playing pretend these days.  Or, as she likes to call it: 'tend. 
She's all about the princesses and the prince charmings. 
And she always calls dibs on the princess role, which means that one of us must be prince charming. 
The other morning us girls were getting ready, and Kam insisted on playing "'tend". 

Kam: Kenna.  Kenna?  Kenna?!  Kenna!!!???  Wanna play 'tend?
{She'll just keep repeating herself until you acknowledge her with eye contact AND verbal confirmation}
Kenners: {sigh} Ohhhhkay.
Kam:  My be Princess Ariel, you be Prince Charming.  Okay?
Kenners: {Nods}.

Ohhhhh dear.  She's a demanding little princess, isn't she?

I'm going to have to remember to start writing these things down. 
Time goes by so quickly, you know.

I love that age, too!! When Lexie was little, her favorite phrase to say in her high little girls voice was, 'That's so tute!!' Tute being her version of cute. :o) It was so adorable that I never corrected her. Bad mommy, I know. :o)

That's hilarious! Get up here on this bed and cuddle me. Haha!
I like "drinky." I think that's awesome.

Awwww! I love it!! It's one of my favorite ages too. Bailey still uses an "m" instead of an "n" in most words and I don't want to correct her. So, yesterday, she put on jeams and asked for help opening the screem door. :)

ROTF about the eyebrows. That is funny. LOL about her little sayings. Those are so cute.

It does go by so quickly and I think it's wonderful that you're documenting this time. I need to be better about that. I love "I'm drinky"...that is just the best. Such a sweet girl (who knows what she wants!).

I love this age too. A lot. If they could stay this age for about 10 years I'd be a happy mama. Tired...but happy.

The eyebrows? Oh my gosh, love her!

I was just thinking the other day that I needed to start writing some of the things Ian says down so I won't forget them - they are so stinkin adorable at this age!!

I a a huge fan of documenting all the cute things kids say. When my kids were young it was a tad annoying to have them hungry & stuffed a million times a day. Now that they're older they are always hungry. My grocery bill seems to get higher every month.

I love that age too and she is just a doll. I laughed about the eyebrows, cause I have seen actual women with them that high and thin before!
