This week, Pumpkin turned 4. She let me know that, because she was turning 4, she did not pick her nose, a sure sign of how quickly she is growing up. She has her moments, to be sure, but she is a genuinely sweet, smart and funny kid who loves to help and is a great big sister – she was so excited when Peanut started walking and tried to help her as much as possible. She loves to draw, read and write, and enjoys ballet and swim lessons.
Last year, I started doing a birthday questionnaire. Below are her 4-year-old answers. See last year’s post to compare. (As you can see, her Frozen obsession has not subsided.)
