Preparing for Jack

Lauren will be a great big sister. She talks about and to Jack a lot. She is drawn to all babies, big or small. She is very empathetic when someone is sad or upset.
I just hope that after a week or two she still feels the same way.

How do you spell...? Any word. Any word she knows, wants to know, heard somewhere, thinks she may have heard somewhere, you must spell it for her. And then tell her how many letters are in that word. And IF there is a letter "L", watch out! Her favorite letter and then she tells you every word she knows with an "L" in it (or as many as she can think of). She looked at us tonight and said, "T-O-Y spells toy" and when I asked who taught her that, she said "Woody" (from Toy Story). Glad she's paying attention. I laugh in the face of people who say TV teaches nothing!

Minute by minute

Her moods change. In the blink of an eye. BAM! Happy, giggling, running around...BAM! Angry, screaming and yelling and then...BAM! Happy and all is well once more. Until the last couple of weeks, she has been very easy going and predictable. Now? Not so much. I don't know if it is all of the "Jack" talk or talking about preschool (By the way, we met her teacher, Miss Laura, today and she seems very nice. Lauren loved the classroom and the playground and is excited to go back on Thursday) or if it is just that she is three and I have no real reason for her actions. Only time will tell.
