You are my baby, my last born, the little blondie and you know how to press every button I have.
I remember once having a conversation with someone about you and they reassured me the ones who are a challenge to parent are the ones who will go places. They won't settle for second best, they won't be pushed out the way, they are not afraid to cause a stir. In fact they are the ones who could change the world as they make things happen.
I'm often at a loss as to how to parent you. Each child is different and I seem to have been able to work it out with JJ and his needs and Miss E is pretty easy going and as long as she has hugs she is happy, but what about you babe, what do you need?
I want to be there for you and be what you need me to be but I have to put boundaries in place and be firm. I know you don't like that but you really do need it, it is for the best. I'll keep on praying and asking the Lord to reveal to me what is best for you and how we can help you grow and be who he us designed you to be.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10We need to start planning some time, just you and me. I'm available so much more now than I used to be but you seem to need me to say this is time just for us, no other kids. You appear to want that time set aside rather than just available to you. So we can do that each week.
You have some funny little ways Miss M, but I do particularly love -
How you let your twin sister have the last word
How you are always trying to grow old before your time -
How modest you are and that you don't enjoy posing for photos or showing off at all!
That you are game for anything and will jump in with full gusto -
That you love me and snuggle in for a hug when we walk. Keep reaching for me Miss M, I'll always be here -
That we have fun together -
I've enjoyed spending time today looking over photos of you and me and seeing how you changed from this gorgeous little bundle into this stunning young girl.
I love you babe, keep talking to me. There is nothing we cannot conquer together.
