IMG_7683 3 is a magic number.

3 can go out to dinner pretty easily. Everyone can feed him or herself.

3 can look at books in her room.

3 can all go to Green Valley for a spontaneous middle of the day hike.

3 can hide in the bathroom and cut off her own hair.

3 falls asleep on her own, at night (although 3 only sleeps 8 hours a night with no naps and 29 has a hard time with that).

3 makes tag team parenting so easy.

In July I’ll see what 4 is like.

I’m a little scared.

I'm so dumb. Only after reading this for the second time did I get what you meant by "In July I'll know what 4 is like" like 4 years old AND 4 people in your fam. duh. You're a good writer :)

I'm a little scared about 3.

But it's a little too late now... as of yesterday we hit three, and now I'm really nervous.

Good luck with four!

ha ha ha ha How cute. And how funny that she cut off her own hair. Tatum did that at 3 too. Oh, 3 is hard hard hard. Hate to break it to Metta.

what is it with kids and cutting hair? i don't get it, but they all seam to have this need to cut hair. when i saw the picture i was thinking, what a cute cut! sounds like it was not planned!
i think your going to handle 4 well! and, i keep thinking that since jill is around here that our fam will end up hanging with your fam sooner or later.... has not happened yet! we should all go to the beach or on a fun hike, it has been a while since i have been on a good hike!

3 has been a hand full for me, but I would not change a thing. And I would love 4!
