It was Neddie’s 2nd birthday yesterday. To prevent him getting overwhelmed and because Sam doesn’t get home till 5.30, he didn’t open all his presents. The presents have been in the lounge for a week, since his party.
I came down just now to discover that Kendra, who is 3 1/2 has opened them all. And from experience, she’s done it. She hasn’t helped him. So the lounge is awash with wrapping paper and presents out of boxes and I don’t know where he got what from and who to thank.
Mostly I’m mad cos presents are important to me and I really wanted to see him open them and light up with each one.
I really don’t know what to do with her. The presents have been there all week. She said she did it because she wanted to. I said so many times yesterday that we do presents all together. She knows we do presents all together. She knew last night before bed that we do some more today when we were all up.
How do you deal with a 3 year old who does what she wants?
