Your Three Year Old
This afternoon I finished reading Your Three Year Old. It is an older book (1976) that I recently got from Bookins after trying to "win" it on ebay several times (in a lot with the other Your X Year Old...books). The subtitle is "Friend of Enemy" which is somewhat apt. I have found three to be a difficult age with L (also has really good attributes as well--increased competence, funny conversations...*real* conversations, more creative play, playing interactively with other children, etc.) Anyway, though some of it was dated, a lot of it was relevant and helpful. Having Z has definitely made L seem so much older and I forget that he is NOT a "miniature adult" and I need to remember not to treat him like one and become exasperated when he doesn't respond the way I want him to! I will plan to read other books in this series as the time arises (I found Your One Year Old, Your Six Year Old, and Your 10-14 Year Old at the JC book sale, so that is cool :)
I like to read and I read a LOT. I learned to read when I was three and never stopped! This blog was created to share comments about the books that share my days. I'm the mother of two small boys. Most of the readings logged here were read as I nursed my younger one to sleep for bedtime or nap time.
This blog is no longer being regularly updated, due to other blogging projects that have more importance to me.
