She's so many things, but I've tried to compile some of her prominent characteristics.
The negotiator. When you tell her to do something, she doesn't accept it as is but instead will ask "What's my option?" and then she'll add something to the original request. For example, I'll tell her that it's time for bed. Kathryn will then say "Mommy, what's my option? Am I going to bed or do I get to watch a show?" Um, what?
Questions are fairly simple, some are a little more advanced, but it's fun listening to her responses so far. The questions are along the lines of: How do you feel when you're playing an instrument or painting a picture? Kathryn's response: "I feel good when I'm playing an instrument. I want a drum." or, Would you rather be camping or watching a movie? "Watching a movie because I like watching movies. And I want to go camping too because I want to do both."
The mischievous one. For example "gluing" flashcards to the bookcase with chapstick because it needed a picture on it. This corner is also what she refers to as her "clubhouse"or her "spaceship". She's not so much into causing trouble, but rather her style is to be sneaky.
She found the scissors. Luckily, she only took off a tiny bit.
The wild imagination. When I call the dogs into the house, she comes running and will tell me, "No, mommy, I'll call the dogs in. I can speak dog."I love the crazy things she comes up because her brain is always going and keeping us on our toes.
Driving the truck in the driveway is like the best thing ever as a kid.
She's become a sucker for accessories and dressing up in "pretty dresses".
Slightly understated grocery story attire: heels, a dress and a new way to wear a necklace
She's such a kind little girl who I swear is well beyond her years. From the way she hugs me and gazes into my eyes to the things that she comes up with - it just seems like she's much more of an old soul mixed with a goofy three year old.
