3 year old minds

I'm considering another redesign.

I can't help it, I love Paint Shop Pro, and making graphics makes it possible to avoid personal interaction, which I'd very much like to do right now. "Why?" You ask, "when you seemed so upbeat just hours ago?"

Because children, at 3, cannot understand things, and when you're sweet littlest one gets all excited about doing the Heart Walk, and you wonder why she's so thrilled (knowing it isn't the satisfaction of giving because a 3 year old really don't understand giving so much just yet...) and find yourself in a conversation that goes something like this:

Terra: We're gonna go bye bye Mommy?
Me: Yes baby, tomorrow we're getting up reeeeeeal early to go to the heart walk
Terra: Now Mommy? I need my shoes on!
Me: No not yet honey, tomorrow.
Terra: We're going bye bye Mommy!?!?!
Me: Yep, in the morning, tomorrow, after we wake up.
Terra: We're gonna go for a walk Mommy? In Charlotte?
Me: haha, yes sweety we are...
Terra: To go get Dophalin!?
Me: *hug* No honey, not to get Donovan.
(Exit stage left straight to bathroom to bawl.)
(Still bawling.)

Well, right then, life sucks, and you get lost in crap, and interpersonal relationships seem, well, overwhelming.


  1. Oh Erin. Wish I was in that bathroom to give you a silent, strong hug. I love you.

  2. Oh E, the sweet innocence of children! *hugs*

  3. Words have no meaning here.

    All I can do is love you.

  4. Ditto, James.

    Oh, bless her. Bless Terra. Thought I'd get through the day without falling apart, but, well, sometimes falling apart is what's called for.

    Hugs, Terra; hugs Erin.

  5. I love you sweetie. We all love you.
