Tiffany is the youngest biological sibling to Nicole, Jaime, and Donald.
When we got Tiffany at 3-years-old, and she learned her full name…..we had to call her “Tiffany Sue Buffalou” (not Butterfield). If we didn’t say the full name, she wouldn’t answer, or she’d answer with her hands on her hips, and say that’s not my name.
One time I had asked her why she did something she wasn’t suppose too. She says (with the most soulful look)…..”because I’m a poooor miserable sinner”. Trying my best not to laugh at her, but to rebuke her for her wrong doings, was so so hard. I had to fake an excuse to go to the bathroom so I could laugh out loud LOL
Now, she will be 15 in a couple of weeks and has the “whoa is me” teenage years. Now when I ask her why she is doing something she isn’t suppose to do, or something she is told to do, she says, no one else is, or because someone else told her to do it another way from what I told her to do. I have to remind her often who is in charge.
Tiffany wanted to be a pediatrician at one point. She has decided that being a Dr. might be too “gross”. Now she is interested in Marine Biology. I’m sure that will have gross parts too, but I haven’t mentioned that at all.
Tiffany is also our hugger and smiles a lot. The elderly people at church gravitate towards her (and Ashley) because of their smiles.
Math is her favorite subject which will be helpful towards being a Dr. or a biologist. She is always reading encyclopedias and loves World Almanac type books.
The youngest likes to sit in Tiffany’s lap to watch TV.
Tiffany also likes to build things…..well, while camping she built a teepee out of twigs, branches, brush. She was upset she couldn’t take it apart and bring it home so she has been working on building one here at home. She gets super mad when the wind blows it down.
