#LifeWithCharlie - Almost 3 Going On 30

How does my kid know the things she knows?

Charlie is 2 and a half going on 30. She has been ahead of the game from day one. By 3 months she was sitting on her own, by 6 months she was talking and by 9, she was walking. What surprises me most, on a daily basis, is her vocabulary and her ability use said vocabulary. She doesn’t just repeat things she hears, although she does that too (her 1st cuss was Je$*s!)she genuinely understands the things that are going on around her and knows how to express herself in a way I’ve never seen from a toddler.

Just this past weekend, about an hour after she smacked me in the middle of a tantrum (unfortunately, she’s not yet above those) she looked over at me and said, “Mommy, I’m really sorry I hit you, you go to work and make all the money and buy me such nice stuff…I am so sorry for hitting you”.

My heart pooped itself.

How did I get so lucky? I have the most caring, kind and thoughtful daughter EVER and I am so grateful for it.
