Month Thirty Four.

september2011 038


After H gets on the bus for school, E turns on her "on" button. She's pretty much "on" all the time, but once he's on that bus, she talks and she talks and she talks my ear off.

I am pretty sure you could find her sweet face next to the definition of love in the dictionary because she is love.

"I love you mama." She tells me at least 82 times a day. But today, "wanna know why I love you?" and "are you wondering why?"

And when I ask why, her answer is: "Because. I just love you so much."

Last week one day she figured out how to unbuckle herself completely. We're talking a five-point harness carseat unbuckling here. And then she gets up.

Not much scarier than driving on the highway having your 2 year old standing behind you.

Our attempts at getting her to stay in her seat with her seatbelt on have been futile. Time outs, taking away special treats, giving kids that stay buckled special treats, nothing has really worked. But yesterday after church, she unbuckled and climbed out of her seat around the time we saw a state trooper driving around and we decided to stop and have him talk to her.

For whatever reason, E immediately started getting panicked about going to jail. "I not go to jail," she told us all in the car. T and M were trying to hide their laughter and H of course was just as worried about E getting hauled away.

The officer very nicely and gently explained to her that she must stay buckled in her carseat and not to get out anymore.

So far, so good.

She's two months away from age three today. And I really can't tell you how we got here so quickly.

We just did.

I am so very glad that E did not have to go to jail and I hope she has learned her lesson! :)

I still can't believe that she figured out how to unbuckle! I'm glad that the talk from the friendly MN State Trooper is helping!

She is so beautiful! What a cutie. And I will have to remember the state trooper idea in case we run into similar problems in the future... ;)

I like that the trooper was there "to protect and to serve". Great idea on your part.
