Laine


Does anyone out there feel like their 3 year old is not only smarter, but more responsible than them? Ben and I just don't know where this girl came from. We are both yellow's to the core, which is a lot of fun, but it is sad that you practically have to have the locksmith on speed dial, etc...

Anyway, she is so, so smart. And clean, and efficient, and organized. She CAN'T go to bed without her room being immaculately clean. What is that about? (No complaints!, just didn't expect that from my progeny!) The other night we went to the grocery store as a family and she got to use one of the small kiddie carts. So she shopped for the groceries, loaded them up to be paid for, carted them to the car, unpacked them out of the car with Dad, then opened the fridge and started putting them away!

We were driving in the car with my sis Katie on the way home from Gaengy and Pop Pop's (my parents, the Gildea's). Gabe had been asleep but woke up and Katie said "Wakie, Wakie" and I said "Eggs and Bacie" and then Laine pipped in: "Baby's nakie!" as, Gabe was only in his diaper by that point. Anyway, it was hilarious!

She is also so helpful! The other day Gabe climbed up me and scratched me all over. Laine disappeared for a minute and then came back with nail clippers! The things she thinks of on her own! Sometimes I seriously feel like I am the child and she is the mother (like when she locked me in my room yesterday and then came back and asked if I was ready to be nice perhaps?) We love our little Laine!



Don't forget to notice Dad did her hair that day!

Not only is she smart and responsible, but she is the most DARLING 3 year old. Seriously, she is a major babe.

Wow... I don't know where she came from either! I am excited to see her in action tomorrow and I will try to be on my best behavior so she doesn't lock me in my room for timeout!

What a sweet post, Nat. It's fun to get to know the Riley grandkids' personalities better as they grow up. Thanks for posting, it's so fun to check!

She is so so cute! Benr, my dad used to do my hair every morning when I was a little girl. Of course I don't remember what it looked like all the time, but I still remember those fun times I shared with my dad, so keep it up!

I think the responsibleness is definitely a girl thing, and she is the oldest. But wow, she sounds so grown up, it's hilarious! My favorite comment was the babies nakie!! haha that was hilarious! What a cutie.

nat, I remember your room from college (not that I have much room to talk), but I can't imagine you having a little girl who is "tidy"!!! That is great. What is even better is that she locked you in your room. LOL!
