Favorite Clothes; Dress
My daughter loves to wear dresses, She likes to pretend she is a princess while she watches the Barbie series on DVD, acting out the scenes she watches all throughout the movie.
Today she did not want to go to school because she said she was tired. When we told her that she was going to wear a dress to school today,she all of a sudden got up and was feeling better.
She started her routine of getting ready for school by showering and getting dressed. She was happily walking and dancing and singing her way to school. She's a happy kid by nature and she is enjoying growing up.
After school, we walked home and for the first time she didn't want to buy ice cream which we usually do ( i think she did not want her dress to get messy with the ice cream). While walking she told me she wanted to watch the barbie princess movie wearing her dress. When we got home, i told her she needs to change her clothes, but she reminded me about barbie princess so she don't want to change her clothes yet. So I let her watch and asked her, "after you watch one movie, you have to change your clothes and take a nap" she didn't answer. So I repeated again "after you watch one movie, you have to change your clothes and take a nap". This time she looked at me and nod and said "yes mommy", in this situation we had a deal.
Trying to motivate a child is so hard sometimes, but you can always use her favorites to your bargaining advantage.
I love her so much, Sometimes I forgot that she's only 3 years old. She's like a grown up when we talk. I pray to God everyday that He watch over my little princess and keep her safe always......
