Three and a Half Going on 17

Today, The Toddler, henceforth to be known as "The Vance" (pronounced vahnce), turned three and a half.

BH, she is doing very well. She is happy and funny and loves school. She can also be a pain in the neck, like any three year old. And, although three and a half, she has the vocabulary and some of the mannerisms of an adolecent. This leads to endless laughter in our home. Not a day goes by where The Vance doesn't say something that totally cracks us up.

(To cite just one example: On Shemini Atzeres, The Vance was eating a plate full of candy (brought by one of our guests) for "gessert". OYD tried to take a couple of pieces by distracting The Vance. The Vance caught OYD in the act, looked her in the eye and said, "Nice Try!").

We are hopeful that her "situation" will resolve itself favorably over the course of the next few months and, in the meantime, enjoy her day by day.
