This beating drum she beats all on her own can make me nuts! This child has the capability to stare into your eyes, repeat what you have asked her to do, and in the split second that she takes her eyes away from yours and turns to walk away, it's gone. Completely vanished as if you have never said the words! Sometimes the drum beat is cute - as in dance class...class goes left, my girl goes right. Adorable! Other times, like the days where there is homework that involves focus (as in Monday through Thursday!), that drum beat is really not so cute. We've been playing around a bit with letting my girl choose her own clothes. Woah Nellie! That drum beats wild!
We got the book order from school today that we put in over a month ago! I forgot we ordered books! There was a book we chose to read tonight, and it's really the whole reason I felt the need to introduce you to my girl. This book just yells to me "THIS IS YOUR GIRL ! EMBRACE HER!"
Tonight we read Woolbur by Leslie Kelakoski
That drum also beats with some seriously mushy compassion too. That's my favorite beat. My girls heartbeat matches her drum beat. She lives in the now. There is no past, no grudge to hold, there is no future to worry about. There is only now. Now to make you smile, now to make you nuts, now to have fun! I love you, my girl!
