just when i needed it . . . i tell you!!
our children ~ those whom we raise ~ that are a direct reflection of us??? are you kidding me. my daughter is a ball of energy, and granted i was too, but i had this little governor called people pleasing - hee! looking back, i'm not sure if i ever got that much out of hand. my little girl on the other hand (because we have two) is resilient as they come . . . sounds so good ~ until ~ she sits like she is unaffected by the coach, and the teacher, and the other children's disapproval. . .
but do you know what i read ~ something about how she is an 'orange' & how these children are bursting with energy & their response to when they get in to trouble is "is it really that big of a deal, i mean ~ did anyone really get hurt."
what a relief~ and i thought she had a problem with authority!! ha! i have to remind myself she is only 8, but insights like this really help me dig in & love her more ♥
i actually went & bought some open baskets for her room ~ the perfect fit for her book shelf. i have been in a frenzy trying to get all the Barbies & Pet Shop's in order for her arrival this evening.
like i said - i am traveling like madd to get this degree finished, so i hope this will help her know how much i love her!!
that said - no more time for blog today!!
wish i could write more, be a little more coherant but it is off to watch my little fish swim before i head onto the road . . . thank you Books on CD ~ you keep me company :)
