My baby is three. Here is the recent transcript from an interview with said three-year-old:
Me: Lucas, did you have a birthday?
**singing "happy birthday to you"**
Me: What did you do for your birthday?
Lucas: I didn't do anything. Mom, look at these letters. Big huge circle.
**drawing on paper**
Me: Tell me what it's like to be three.
Lucas: I'm gonna color you, your face. I'm gonna kill you, mom.
**takes a drink of root beer, then starts singing "happy birthday" again.**
Well, that about sums up Lucas.
Also, if you make cupcakes and find that they have spread all over the pan and created a ginormous mess, just double the frosting and hope that no one notices. It worked for us.
