The 3-year-old's turn

Ten random things about Rachel:

1. Rachel insists on pretending her daily vitamins are gum.

2. She loves to make up stories about anything and everything. The most recent one she shared with me was about making soup out of grass and flowers and cat noses and tissue boxes so that we could eat it and go "eewwwwww!"

3. Rachel loves spicy food.

4. She sleeps with a Scooby Doo doll, a baby doll that she got for her 3rd birthday that she named Shauna, a red-headed doll she also named Shauna, and a pink care bear named... Shauna.

5. Rachel can fake cry very convincingly.

6. She has one long purple dress that she would wear every single day if we let her (and we seriously would if we didn't mind doing laundry every night). When that is unavailable she insists on "all pink."

7. If she doesn't want to do something her default excuse is "I'm ti-red."

8. Several months ago while trying on bike helmets I accidentally pinched Rachel under her chin with the clasp. Now whenever I help her put on her helmet she tells me not to hurt her again. Every. Single. Time.

9. Rachel prefers to sleep with no covers.

10. Rachel is learning that while Mommy and Daddy don't always give in to her crying tantrums, big sister Anna usually will.
