DD can get herself dressed and undressed, but there are some items that she needs help with. Put on her shoes, even gets the feet correct. Puts on her coat. She can change her own pee diaper (we are in diapers because she still will not poop on the potty).
She is starting to help get herself strapped into the car seat (she can do the chest buckle, but I do the crotch and tightening. She is starting to wash herself at bath time, I wash her hair and bum.
I wish she would F'in poop on the potty. When she wears underwear on the weekends she does pee on the potty w/o issue, but when she wears a pull up at daycare she just pees in it to make life easier. Wish she would take a shower.
She gets herself dressed for the most part, shoes included. Uses the restroom completely by herself. She tries to latch herself into the carseat, but tends to get the straps twisted up. Mostly bathes herself, I do her hair and private parts.
Puts her dishes into the sink when she's done eating. Picks up most of her toys. Fills up her own water cup Puts away her laundry into proper drawers Gets the dog his food-requires lots of reminders
I really wish she'd brush her own hair and pick up with less prompting.
She can get dressed herself but struggles with taking shirts off. She will still act like she can't especially when Daddy is home and admittedly I will help her especially if we are in a hurry in the morning, I just don't have the patience it takes lol.
She can use the potty by herself but I always help her wipe with poop.
She sets the table for dinner.
She clears her plate from the table and throws leftover food etc in trash.
Sweeps the kitchen and fills dog dish when asked.
Picks up toys when asked 80 million times, haha.
She enjoys making her own PBJ and buttering bread etc.
She likes to play mommy with her brother and help take care of him, so sweet.
She is a pretty independent kid ("no, I do") except when her baby brother does something that he gets attention for (whether good or bad) like eat sand for the first time. Tell me why she waited till 3.5 to try sand for the first time...weird kid!!
ETA: I wish she'd get consistent with putting on shoes/coats, she can do it but will freak if something isn't just right (tongue of shoe or her sleeves riding up). Like full on meltdown and refuses to listen to how she can fix it.
We're working on her walking on her own places, in stores etc. She does well when it's just me and DS since I usually carry him but if DH is around she always wants him to carry her and he isn't very good at convincing her to do it on her own.
I'd LOVE if she'd stop being so whiny and high maintenance, ugh, most days it takes everything in me to make it through the day. I'm so scared for teenage years!
He can mostly get dressed and undressed. He can wash in the bath if I have the time to let him. He can set the table and clear his plate. He can do his car seat completely; I just have to check it. He comes downstairs on his own when his light turns green in the morning and after nap.
Isn't this the truth! I feel like DD would be able to do more things if I just had more time/patience for it.
