As we approach the 2 year mark my trio has definitely grown. One of the things I’m most proud of is the fact that my triplets (usually) love to share. They find happiness in the receivers delight when they give them something – now that can be an empty sippy cup, lovey, or even a booger but the fact is my kids like to give.
The other day, Cam was having a little melt down and Calder came over with his lovey and gave it to him to try to make him feel better. Another example – Cam pushed Evie, after a short time out he went back to her and tried to give her a hug and kiss. But the best is at the dining table when they share food – I think this is just a tactic for Calder not to eat his vegetables but it’s definitely a “barter and trade” sharing moment.
The other nice benefit to having almost two year olds – they are eager to please and love copying. I don’t mind that they love to copy my cleaning lady, because let’s face it – with triplets, the house constantly needs cleaning and I am the worst…. Calder is the cleaning champion and each day after every meal he likes to wipe down the little kitchen table and chairs. When he spills, he say “oh-oh, tissue” and after receiving a tissue or pice of paper bowl proceeds to get on all fours and clean. He takes such pride in wiping up messes – it’s ridiculous!
Would love to hear what other mommies love about this age. What silly or sweet things do your toddlers do to put a smile on your face?
