Thursday was Little Bug’s Thanksgiving Feast at preschool!
And as you can tell from these pictures, Little Bug was not having it.
But, this is just Little Bug for now. She is three. Three and a half years old (almost) to be exact. And as I have noticed, at the year mark and half-year mark, Little Bug goes through a “funk” that lasts about two weeks and then my sweet girl returns.
This current funk includes arguments and negotiations about what Little Bug wants to do.
Our response as her parents is a re-teaching of first-time obedience and a requirement of her just saying “yes mam” and “yes sir” when told to do something.
Anyway…as soon as I walked in the room, the drama began with tears. She didn’t want to sing and didn’t want to wear her Indian costume.
Then she started reaching for me with this pathetic little look. I told her to come to me and held her and gave her hugs and then I told her she had two minutes and it was time to go back and sing her songs with her friends.
The program started and she slowly walked back, keeping a scowl on her face the whole performance and not singing one word of the songs!
After the performance, Princess Frown came down from stage and wanted to get out of her costume immediately.
We went to her classroom where everyone enjoyed a Thanksgiving Feast, and Little Bug finally perked up.
She had quite the audience!
In the middle of eating her pumpkin pie Little Bug loudly said, “Gramps!!! Gramps, you are in Mrs. S’s chair!”.
After the feast, the class played some games and then read a Thanksgiving book. Sweet Pea had fun with sister at school!
Oh, this child. She has me laughing one minute and wanting to pull my hair out the next.
She’s a little turkey…that is for sure!!
