Isabel is just about the cutest little girl in the world. I’m sure
you-all have different opinions, but she is so darling right now.
I was talking to a friend the other day about the “terrible twos” and
saying that we weren’t experiencing them. I spoke too soon. We had 2
tempertantrums in rapid progression. Okay, so she isn’t so darling
when she’s screaming.
The big one happened when she was washing dishes at the kitchen sink.
It was time for bath. I let her continue to wash dishes while I filled
the tub and undressed her. Previously, this had worked fine. Well,
this time the shit hit the fan. She was furious that I stopped her
from washing dishes. It took me 10 minutes to get her calmed down so
that she wasn’t screaming when I held her. I ended up getting in the
tub with her to wash her. That worked, and fortunately, she hasn’t
wanted me to get in with her again.
She’s very cute in the tub. I got her a Pooh wash mitt. Well, I got
it for me to wash her with. She loves it. It tickles when I use it to
clean her. The sound of her laughter is the most beautiful sound in
the world. After she’s all clean, I let her play in the bath.
Currently, she likes to pretend the babies are poopy and clean them up.
She very tenderly holds them and cleans their bottoms, but the babies
are face down in the water.
The other night, she wanted to sit on the toilet before getting into
the tub. We read 3 books, and I was getting impatient, but she kept
insisting that she needed a little more time. Well, she pooped in the
toilet. I was so pleased. It’s much better to poop in the toilet than
in the bathtub. I let her run out to her daddy to tell him before
getting in the tub.
She wants to call the baby Angel. Her abuelo calls her his little
angel, but I’m not sure if that is where she got it from or not. She’s
very certain that she wants a sister, not a brother.
