Celia had her 3rd race as part of the Healthy Kids Running Series and she was awesome! Grandma and Grandpa came to see her. Mom Mom saw her last weekend. She with a smile on her face the whole time. She is funny when she starts though, they say go and Celia looks side to side to make sure that everyone else has gone and then she runs. So she is typically the last to start but she catches up fast. Today she placed 4th and she was certainly the last to start. But.. I am not looking for her to be in the top, the whole point is for her to accept not being the best at something. A skill she really needs to learn.
Audrey is now at that stage where she is certain that she is just as old as Celia. She thinks that she can do everything that Celia does and sometimes it does not work out. I noticed that when she talks to kids her own age she often leans down and cocks her head like adults do when they are talking to toddlers. I dread hearing "No Mommy, I do it myself". That translates to this task will take 10x as long to do and likely involve a fit if things do not go right. She wants to strap herself in the carseat and that would be great if she could really do the whole thing. It takes her forever and then 9 times out of 10 she can not get the bottom part and she gets mad when I do it. I then have Celia who tends to be distracted by everything and it takes forever and a day for her to even sit in her seat, let alone strap herself in. So inventors of carseats, think about this invention- kid sits in the seat and voila the straps automatically attach around the child.
