This is definitely the stage where the boys want to prove they can do most things themselves (or with limited help). We stand aside and let them try but keep close for the frequent calls for "help mommy". Mathew dresses himself completely ...but man his attention span is quite short so he often forgets what his original task was. Here is a little video of Mattie from the weekend. He was supposed to be getting himself dressed to go out but somehow I guess the itty bitty skidoo in the other room was more tempting. So he drives it around, short less, with his slippers on, singing to himself. Oh to be three again!
