3 is cute. I love that she is now talking and I get a glimpse into what she is thinking. It can however also be very frustrating when she thinks she knows everything and that she is right. Sometimes though, even that can be very funny.
On our drive into school/work each day we pass a Mac Donald’s and from the road you are able to see the outside of the kiddies play area and climbing stuff. A few times now Little OL has asked to go but I always so no. She has not yet been to a Mac Donald’s and I don’t want to start something. The conversation normally ends with me saying “We are NOT going to Mac Donald’s” Sometimes she insists a bit more, sometimes she leaves it.
On Saturday however the conversation went like this.
Little OL: “Mom, Donald’s”
Me: “We are not going to Mac Donald’s. It is not nice and we are not going” (truth be told I am a bit of a sucker for their Quarter Pounder with cheese but I am not getting her hooked just yet)
Little OL: “It is nice!”
Me: “How do you know, you have never been”
Little OL: “I have”
Me: “No, you have not, It’s not nice, we are not going”
Little OL: “But I want to go, it is nice! I want to see the animals”
Me: “What animals? There are no animals at Mac Donald’s?”
Little OL: “There are! At the back”
Me: “Little OL there are NO animals at Mac Donald’s”
Little OL: “There are” and then breaks into song “Old Mac Donald had a farm, ee-eye, ee-eye oh”
I probably should have pulled over, I was laughing so much.
