Does anyone else with a 3-4 year old have an independence thing going on at your home? We must hear 50 times a day, "I CAN DO IT MYSELF!!!!" My Ella who could be the poster child for the term Hunan Spicy Girl is insistent that she does everything on her own these days
and gets M A D as can be if we try to assist her with the task at hand. This is all good if we are not on a schedule or running late for something...but we usually are! Is this a familiar scene at anyone else's home?
Ella, Ella quite contrary....how does your garden grow??
sweeping the mulch away
and with a little digging
this is hard work!
Ba Ba can you fill my water can so I can water my pretty flowers?
Notice Daisy puppy in the background....who must be in the middle of everything?
O.K., Daisy...it's your turn to water!
See how big our little puppy has grown? She is almost 6 months old and will probably grow to about double the size she is now.
I hope you all have a wonderful week-end!! We are meeting friends at a children's amusement park over the week-end and are really looking forward to it! They have teens and then 2 little girls from China just like us and they used the same adoption agency as we did...so we can't wait to meet them! Ella is soooo excited!
On a side note....for a bit of a complicated reason, I have decided to remove my RAD posts from this blog and will be putting them on my test blog that will be set to private. Please contact me if there is anyone you know who would like to read them or you feel would be a help to someone. That was the whole idea behind them. Dealing with RAD can be a lonely place...so I wanted to help others feel not-so-alone. I have no answers...but I am happy to be an emotional support to anyone in need.
Blessings and happy week-end to you!!!!!!
