Terrible two… that is what other Moms would tell you as soon as their kid enters the age of two. But are your prepared for a more terrible three? :)
In two months time, my little girl will turn three. But, as I watched her everyday, I can’t help but be amazed as to where she gets all that energy that she can’t stop goofing and jumping around! She loves to jump so much that she won’t stop!
She has this knack of jumping on people (particularly on me!) unexpectedly that you will be caught off-guard. She loves to do this whenever I am with her… whenever I am eating, watching TV, lying on bed or just by simply standing near her...she’ll jump on me with no apparent reason! She’s just so happy doing this! :) I wish that sometimes she would stop… because most of the time, I end up getting hurt with her unexpected jump.
There are times that I would beg Mike to ask her to stop because she won’t listen to me! If I ask her to stop, the more she gets crazy and really “nanggi-gigil” on me. I would sometimes resort to crying na lang or ask Daddy to scold her for me! :( Haayyy…hirap maging Mommy!
I wonder sometimes if jumping is her outlet of saying how much she misses us, since both of us are working. This may be her way of showing her appreciation and joy seeing us at home with her … or this may her way of keeping herself busy all-day or calling our attention by simply telling us: Hey, I am bored at home! I need playmates! Hahaha! Again, this is one of my reasons why I wanted to send her to school.
Well, I’m hoping one day that she’ll stop jumping wildly. But for the meantime, I think I’ll just let her be and enjoy her jumping indulgences. She won’t be forever three … and she’ll definitely outgrow her passion for jumping. And for the meantime, I’ll just enjoy her jumping moments… even it makes me wince once in a while! :)
