Elise is so different than the boys in so many ways. If she had her way she would be on my hip or in my lap all the time with the only exceptions being impromptu dance parties and gymnastics. She is sweet to the core. Are there times when I have to literately push her away from me? Yes. The kids needs to practice a bit of independence. I need to have my back adjusted.
Recently she has really fallen in love with coloring. I can get a good 10 minutes with out her attached to me if I give her something to color. The boys never did and still don’t take their time when coloring. Elise does and there is something so sweet and special about the pride she takes in her work. She is always so excited to show her “Making colors” works of art.
It warms my heart and makes me proud.
