4 is the new 16
I had no idea that four years old would come with so much drama! It has been so interesting to watch Thomas and Stella develop into their own personalities. Being twins, people always ask, "Do they get along?", "Are they a lot alike?"
Do they get along? I think so
Are they a lot alike? yes and no
They both have changed so much in the past year but they one thing that their fourth year has in common is drama.
Here are some of my favorites:
Thomas sits in the coveted chair. Please do not assume that the same chair is coveted every day. It changes. I think the first chair that is sat on in the morning is the coveted chair but I am still working on figuring it out.
Stella asks Thomas ever so sweetly to help her with something.
Thomas gets up to help.
Stella runs over and sits in the coveted chair.
Thomas: Stellllllaaaaaaaaa, I waaaaaassssss sitttttiiiinnnggg therrrrreeee.
Stella: Nooooooo Thommmmmaaasssss, it's myyyyy chairrrrrr.
Thomas and Stella simultaneously: Momma, Stella's in my chair Thomas wasn't sitting there I had it first but Now it is mine We should share. Mommmmmmaaaaaa!
Oh the drama.
Here is another one of my favorites:
Momma: Stella, stop playing with sharp knives (insert anything here...stop running with scissors, stop painting the hallway with nail polish, stop dressing up the dog....you get the picture!).
Stella: Mommmmaaaaaa....you nevvverrrr lettttt meeeee playyyy with knivvvessssss.
Stomps off and slams door.
I have witnessed more arms crossed, head wiggling, feet stomping then I ever thought I would see at four years old. Ummm, 4 is the new teenager!!
4 is the new 16.
