3 years, 11 months. (Tomorrow is your 4th birthday!)
With me being at home now on furlough from my job until July 1st, you and I spend a lot more time together than we are used to.
Most days are a blur of you playing downstairs with your toys while I get work done, mixed with me doing puzzles with you or teaching you how to spell, or taking you outside to play.
But one day last week, after for playing with your toy makeup set for nearly 30 minutes, you sneaked away, only for a minute.
Then you walked up to me, smiling- but not saying a word.
It took me about 5 seconds to figure it out:
“Holly, look at your lipstick! You look beautiful!”
You are still so proud of yourself for knowing how to apply real lipstick.
