She did lots of drawing, including this large family portrait of us. As rabbits.
She really wants to ride her bike all the time, & made an attempt here. She got about a metre along the driveway, then her little wheels just spun out. Training wheels don't really help either.
After bugging me on & off for a couple of months after I dyed my hair, I finally coloured hers to match. I did just a patch on the top of her head, which created a streaked effect all around & in her bangs with the Punky colour. Since her hair is already so light, there was no need to bleach it.
I was actually amazed at how patient she was during the application of the dye & how she avoided touching it while it sat on her head. She was pretty pleased with the results.
The one consequence of dyeing a three-year-old's hair that I hadn't foreseen was that now everybody is constantly commenting on her appearance. It happens enough to little girls, driving home the gender stereotypes, but add in a bright pink hair colour & she gets even more attention for how she looks.
One of Bronte's favourite Christmas gifts was a decorate your own tutu kit from Auntie Sarah & Uncle Aaron. She insisted we do this shortly after receiving it & wore it around the house most of the day. There's a second kit that we still haven't done yet which involves decorating fairy wings. Both kits definitely require adult help but they're actually pretty good for a three-year-old, with chunky beads, buttons, & pompoms that have plastic tubes through them so they can be threaded onto the ribbon quite easily.
I'm really enjoying the fact that I've got a kid who's into crafty pursuits like I am.
