Keith takes the girls to school every morning. He rarely posts on facebook but he took the time to post this:
Two comments, two personalities perfectly represented:
Carli: "Are we on time? I need to get my morning work done so that I can read another chapter book."
Ava: "I need to get mine done so...eh, maybe not."
Ava has been fighting off a weak virus all last week but got to go back to school on Monday. We asked Ava if everyone was glad to see her back at school and she replied, "Yep, I was especially happy to see me back at school today, I sure missed me being there." Right, that's what we meant...
do it. If it's someone else's idea, well, don't expect her to be determined to do it well or right the first time...that is until she finds a different, more difficult way to achieve said task then she'll work hard to get it done. She strives for perfection at new things and is sorely disappointed when she's not perfect the first time. However, perfection is not a big deal for such menial task of cleaning, homework or putting away laundry. But making a butterfly from scrap paper with working wings, yep that's got to be perfect! This kid...she gives me gray hairs and the sweetest kisses.
