Adam is obsessed with the number 3 (or free as he calls it). He has come up with five different ways to show three on his fingers (rotating through which finger he is holding down, which he does in rapid succession while repeating ‘free’). But his favorite is asking for the three year old version of items.
“Do you have a spoon for free?”
“Is there a scissors for free?”
“Grandma, does you carseat fit free?”
For the past two weeks we (which mostly means my husband since I can’t help with the painting portion of this task) have been repainting rooms, and the boys have been begging to help. Today the stars aligned, and a bottom portion of a wall was being painted during daylight hours. Today, the boys got to help paint.
Of course, this required the three-year old version of painting clothes. A three year old paint roller. And three year old safety goggles.
“I need one for free,” was the phrase of the day. Thank goodness we have been preparing for free for a while now!
