My Three Little Birds: Part 1

Miss T

The spirited child.

Do you have one? Do you know one?

Do you want one?

My third born, Miss T has evolved from a sweet, chubby baby into a headstrong, defiant 6 year old. I'd love to share some things about her...

♥ She has the most amazingly, funny personality..and her teacher thinks she's a cracker!

♥ She is very sweet, and loves to help carry in the groceries.

♥ Our favourite games are a million kisses and the tickle game on the bed!

♥ She is very robust and is the boss of the family.

♥ Everyone at school loves her, including the mums.

♥ She loves ravioli.

♥ She has great fashion sense, and thinks nothing of wearing a skirt over jeans.

♥ And she wears odd socks alot of the time.

♥ She loves dress up clothes, and adores her pink sparkly school shoes.

♥ She loves her brother and sister. Most of the time.

♥ She can sniff out a chocolate biscuit even when the biscuit tin is hidden in a cupboard behind closed doors.

She keeps us busy with her antics, and I really have to remind myself to focus on the positives, praise! praise! praise!, pick my battles and remember......

"Everyone stay calm"....

We've had 4 trips to Accident and Emergency for varying reasons including the coin incident. You can read about it here and here.

You may also remember the bed throwing incident.

She sometimes wakes up in a bad mood, bosses everyone around, then kicks some toys across the floor on the way to the kitchen. She's really tough like that.

And I've now just realised that she has chewed her way through my laptop powercord, not unlike a beaver knawing on a piece of wood.

I love her to bits. She is funny, cheeky, energetic, very smart and can outbuild and outdesign anyone with lego. I think she will be an architect when she grows up.

She can design a house for me in some exotic location to repay me for putting up with years of stress and visits to the hairdresser to tend to my increasing amount of grey hairs.

Miss T crying - "I thought I'd be up there forever".

As a teacher, the 'spirited' kids - like your lovely - are the ones I cherish the most.
(Not that we ever have favourites!)

Farmers Wifey keeps repeating:-

"She is going to be a great leader!"

Kate @ Puddles and Gumboots said...

She sounds adorable! Mine all have such strong personalities in different ways, but probably my Mister 5 would be described as the spirited one, he's such an energy ball

Farmers Wifey said...

Hi Kate, yes the energy ball..that's exactly what it is x

Dreaming said...

What a character she must be! I love the picture of her up on the chain-link fence! Uh-huh.... I can see her up trees and exploring ditches, too!
She is darling!

So...did she get all of her enthusiasm for life from you?!!! Did the apple not fall far from the tree?!

Kirsty said...

Ooh this is my master nearly 4 to a t!!! I can tell his teacher is going to love him!!

Farmers Wifey said...

@ Dreaming, hmmm are you suggesting I was a bit of a rogue when I was little? You could be very right there hehehe

@ Kirsty, isn't it wonderful to have a child with..character ♥

Alyce @ Blossom Heart Quilts said...

Lol, yes, and he turns 2 in two weeks!

Farmers Wifey said...

yay!! Another one ♥

Great post.

My Girl Child (8) is similar to Miss T. She has the same fashion sense, loves pasta, wears odd socks and is extremely strong willed. She is also very sweet, loves her brother (generally) and apparently wants to fold washing.

The world would be boring if we were all the same.

Gorgeous. I love that she is the boss of the family!

Sweet post xx

My Pigeon Pair said...

Oh dear LOVE IT! Especially that last photo! She would be a great match for my "spirited" Master 4. Or maybe they would just be plain TROUBLE!

Farmers Wifey said...

Thanks guys, it's wonderful that we have these amazing children who make us laugh and smile, sometimes through clenched teeth :)
