Brandi Lynn Turns Three - Any Toddler Tips To Share?

Brandi Lynn Turns Three - Any Toddler Tips To Share?

Written by Brandi.

Brandi Lynn turns three January 29, 2018. Seems every year goes quicker than the year before. It's part of
a journey I wouldn't trade for anything in the world.

None of us will deny Brandi Lynn has us completely wrapped around her little finger. She is spoiled. Not spoiled in the sense that she throws tantrums or is mean. Each of us, even my teenagers just really enjoy spending time with her, teaching her new things, watching her learn about the world around her.



Some of Brandi Lynn's favorite things in 2017 were her baby dolls, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, chicken nuggets and watching cartoons on YouTube.



Brandi Lynn's biggest unique quirk this last year was (if she wasn't hiding her toys or anything else she was lucky to get a hold of) she loves playing hide and go seek. Even if you really are not in the mood to play or she needs her diaper changed, or her hair combed. You can bet your going to have to seek her out first. She thinks we still haven't caught on that her favorite hiding place is under the diningroom table.

A couple of the things we would like to work on in 2018 is potty training. We already have been trying it out but she isn't fond of that potty chair at all. If any of you have any good tips or places I could go online for some good tips, please leave me some comments down below.

Another thing we are working on this year is more reading time with her and some activities to start her out preparing for headstart. My husband and I were recently joking that we need to work on our separation issues from her before she starts leaving everyday for headstart. I'm almost sure the children attending headstart these days are gone at least 6-7 hours every day. She may even begin sooner than other children because of a therapy program she has been involved in.

As quickly as the time may be going, we look forward to each and every day with Brandi Lynn and all our children. Something I have noticed about myself raising my granddaughter that is a little different than when my children were all toddlers is that being younger you think the world is moving faster. There is no time to slow down and enjoy the small things. With Brandi Lynn I like to take time just to be in the moment because they go by so quickly.





So... Do you have any toddler tips to share?

  1. She seems delightful. I wish there were grandparents in my kids lives. We live too far away so skyping it is.

  10. First of all Happy Birthday Brandi Lynn!! My tip after raising making it through 3 4 times is to give them the freedom to feel their emotions and deal with them. I remember how up and down my Kiddies could be simply because they weren't completely sure why they were feeling angry, sad, etc. I gave the time to understand and ask questions which helped eliminate melt downs and tantrums.
