Being 2.5yrs old is certainly a nice age to be at. It’s an age where you gain your independence and the world and am not afraid to meet up to challenges that you may face. Everyday is a fun learning experience and you get to play the whole day. You are older now but still able to be regarded as a baby.
Help is readily rendered to you whenever you need help dressing up, being fed or face any obstacles. Little things in life either fascinate or annoy you. You do not hide your emotions but display them clearly on your face. You can be bubbly and happy one moment and change into a screaming terror the next when you feel that the world is caving onto you as you didn’t get the last sweet from the box. Lucky the trying moments with Tiger girl do not last that long and she is able to compose herself after the outburst and back to her happy and sweet self.
Tiger girl is at the stage where she is very keen to do everything her own self and questions your reasoning/explanations. It is good that she is learning how to analyze the different situations which she is in and also weigh in on the options that are presented to her.
I guess that it is a rite of passage that all toddlers go through. I once was like how Tiger girl is behaving at the moment. I don’t really have any recollection of how it was being 2.5 years old. All that I have with me are the photographs which my mom took of me and my sister when we were on vacations back then.
I would certainly been friends with myself back then. I think it would have been great fun to have an interactive living doll to accompany me.
How were you like at your youngest child’s age?
