Charis turned three on Sunday! Can it really be that my baby is three? It's SO hard to believe. We were in Pennsylvania for her birthday for my brother's ordination at a PCA church plant in Pittsburgh. It was a FLYING trip. We got in at my parent's house around 11:00 PM on Saturday and arrived home at 1:00 AM on Monday in Maryland. Monday=Exhaustion for all of us. Thankfully, Charis took a 5 hour nap. I was only able to rest for about two hours.
Granny made Hello Kitty cupcakes for Charis, and she blew out three candles. Okay, actually it was my dad who blew the candles. Charis was clueless about what she needed to do.
A few realizations/questions:
- If we're still in MD in two years time, I'll start homeschooling her. I'll need to double check on the state laws on reporting, etc. Which is rather daunting. How do you choose a curriculum? How do you choose a method? Meanwhile, I keep praying, "God help me."
- My daughter's turning into a young lady. No, she's not completely potty trained, but she loves helping "mama".
- Where did "mama" come from? I NEVER told her to call me mama, but she does. I think it's rather cute, but I'm still uncertain about the source.
