I know I’m a bit hard on my kids. I like to write about their mischievous endeavors and sometimes leave out the sweet stuff. So this post is dedicated to them. Here are a few of this week’s impressive accomplishments.
Dani (age 7)
My darling daughter was exceptionally nice for an ENTIRE afternoon. This was huge! She later exclaimed, “it’s just so exhausting to be so nice, but it felt good in my heart.” The next day she did not exhaust herself so much.
Evie (age almost 6)
I’ve mentioned before that my Evie is painfully shy. That’s why I was shocked to see this on the playground–Evie actually let another girl hug her! I was so proud of my daughter! Of course, Evie didn’t hug the girl back and walked away immediately after the hug, but I’m still counting it as progress.
Mase (age 3)
Mase is such a joyful little guy, and quite animated. He randomly threw a shoe at Dani’s head this week. Thankfully, it was on the afternoon she was being sweet or there would have been a brawl. When he noticed Dani was a bit injured, he started crying. Possible tears for fear of punishment, but I like to imagine they were tears of remorse.
And I can’t leave out, Dax (age 19 months)
Dax is the best cuddler and loves to laugh. He has also taken it upon himself to help with the cooking. Here’s a shot from yesterday as he was familiarizing himself with my spices.
