IT'S A THREE RING CIRCUS


People ask how Naomi is adjusting in our family and I'd have to say it's now a three ring circus. Funny how adding just one more can change the dynamics of a group. Naomi spends a lot of time watching us deal with Marissa who has quite a mind of her own. Observations: Naomi now can count to two while pointing her finger . She's learning the 1-2-3 approach we use to modify Marissa's behavior. Naomi starts fussing in the same tone I use while redirecting and restating my expectation for Marissa. hmmmm.....I'll have to work on that one. Mia on the other hand will have a career in law enforcement. Mia likes order and has a do it myself thing going on right now. She is even trying to use the 1-2-3 approach on Marissa. hmmmm.....I'll have to work on that one too. Naomi has learned where all the appliance manuels are and can even start the dishwasher with her pointy finger. We are ALL learning to shut the bathroom doors after Na-Na discovered with great delight the water in the toilet bowl. UGH!!!! I'm telling you the joy she had on her face the day she found out there is water in there.... We are loving it.

I have been getting advice from mothers at work and they all have been cautioning me about adding the 3rd one....parents become outnumbered. I hope I can keep my chin up.
