Day 2 of NaBloPoMo
“Mom, how many carbs are in this?”
The little voice was coming from behind me. I turned around to look at what Sugar Boy was referring to, and to answer him, when to my surprise I saw Sweet Girl standing there holding up a tootsie pop. Now in my defense, my kids’ voices sound VERY much alike… and truthfully I just didn’t expect this question from her.
“Fifteen.” I answered automatically. She seemed to consider this – the answer seemed acceptable and off she went. She didn’t even eat it… she was merely curious how many carbs it contained.
My kids amaze me. Every. Day.
But this particular incident really melted my heart. Its testament to the heart of gold contained within Sweet Girl. She is a truly amazing child. She is precocious and yet sweetly sensitive. Despite being surrounded by boys a lot of the time (her brother, her cousins, and most of our friends’ kids) she is ALL girl. She loves playing dress up, getting made-up and doing her hair. She already has as many pairs of shoes as I do (and that's saying something!!!) and she loves purses and jewelery. She is also becoming quite the little dancer!
Last weekend all of Sweet Girls loves combined into one fabulous evening! Her dance class was to perform at the Halloween Carnival that our town was putting on. The girls did a ballet routine to Bibbity Bobbity Boo. They all dressed as Cinderella, and Sweet Girl got to wear make-up! The perfect night for our little lady!
