I haven’t blogged about my youngin much this past month. So here is a Sunshine update:
She is currently OBSESSED with two things. Frozen, and the Littlest Pet Shop. In that order. I find things like this all over the house:
She makes up absolutely fantastic stories about the activities of her animals. They go shopping, out to eat, to school and most recently I think they were having a presidential election.
I have seen Frozen probably 50 times. I can probably recite the entire movie. And I made the mistake of downloading the soundtrack and now have heard “Let It Go” at least a zillion times. On the way to and from school. To the grocery store. To Girl Scouts. To her friends house. And the child has found YouTube (with restricted content) and in between her screenings of Frozen, she watches clips from the movie.
First grade has been good to her. I had to use bribery to get her to behave for the month of March. She earned a Barbie car (which has now been converted to a LPS car) for not getting a note sent home from the teacher for an entire month.
The thing is that she LOVES to socialize. When she does get a note, it isn’t because she did anything malicious, it is because she was disrupting the class by talking. Or giggling. Or trying to make someone laugh. Her teacher absolutely loves her, says she is a joy to teach, but that she needs to get a handle on appropriate times to talk. I had the same problem at her age.
She has always been my Sunshine. She is now starting to get “sassy” and to talk back, and even then she still manages to crack me up. Its hard to keep a straight face when I’m trying to correct her. Most of her musings end up on Facebook unfortunately. My friends and family love to hear of her antics.
I don’t know what I would do without her in my life. She truly makes all this chronic illness bullshit much more palatable. I remember when she was still teeny tiny. I was still newly diagnosed with fibro, maybe just over a year since diagnosis. I spent a lot of time with her in bed, just staring at her, giggling with her. We still do that, but usually its watching movies together.
I am so lucky to be her mama.
