Mommy has been a big ol' slacker lately; it's been three months since I've written you a letter! And a LOT has happened in those three months!
Mommy started back to school in January, and you have been such a big girl about it. You don't complain when I have to go to class, and you only interrupt me about 10 times an hour on the rare occasion that I'm doing homework while you're awake. :) I think it helps that Daddy always let you eat McDonalds and completely trash the house while I'm at school. Mean old Mommy always makes you pick up your toys before bedtime! But it's ok, and I love to hear about the stuff you did with Daddy while I was gone.
You are a born shopper, which makes my little heart proud and my checking account sad. You went shopping with Meme and I one weekend and were a total mercenary. You were only supposed to end the day with two new outfits. Instead you had six. SIX!! Meme and I were total suckers.
Mommy had a birthday this month and you were super sweet about it. I was very sick and couldn't really celebrate, but you grabbed my iPad, played some songs and danced your little heart out for me. According to you we were "getting this party started". You've got some serious moves kiddo. Daddy is already stressing out about this. But I've got to tell you- your little dance party absolutely made my day. You wanted me to have a good birthday so badly, and thanks to you I did!
I've noticed lately that you've picked up a few of Mommy and Daddy's bad habits though. Such as saying curse words. Thanks Daddy. And it should come as no surprise that you've got a temper. Unfortunately it's a hair trigger temper like Daddy's so we're working on controlling those pesky little impulses like yelling and throwing things. You don't want to grow up and be a little stinker sweetie pea, so hopefully all these time-outs will start working soon.
You're also extremely persistent. As in you absolutely refuse to take "no" for an answer. Persistence is a lovely quality, don't get me wrong, because it will help you achieve your goals in life. But right now, all it's achieving is headaches. I still can't wrap my head around the fact that you are so sweet and helpful one minute, and then making me want to pull my hair out the next! So, that's another little character trait we're going to work on.
Luckily, none of these traits seem to show themselves at school. Ms. Melba and Ms. Michelle brag on you ALL THE TIME. They absolutely adore you, and are always telling Mommy how good you are in class and how hard you try to follow the rules and please them. That makes me and Daddy so proud.
You and Seeley have developed a love/hate relationship here lately as well. One minute you're both playing so great together and the next all hell has broke loose. You're kicking him out of your room and slamming doors. He's grabbing a bat and beating the crap out of you. Not fun. But, you still love him. Even when he's getting on your nerves, which all little brothers are honor bound to do, you will always hug him and love on him after the final beat down.
