Camille is getting so big and full of spunk. She is in pre-K 3 days a week at Daycare. It's nice because the daycare has a pre-K program so the girls can still go to the same school.
Camille, for the most part, is a very good girl. She has pretty good manners and is a very good listener with teachers and coaches. We have our fits and sassy moments but who doesn't with a 4-year old girl. We are kind of between this little girl/big girl stage. Sometimes she is so independent and others so shy and scared.
I was walking with a friend of mine who has an older girl (9) the other day and she was telling me about playground stuff that is happening with her daughter. I can't/dont want to do down this road. I just want to live in our little bubble. We are still into stuff animals, cartoons and just playing to play. On Sunday, I had a lot of alone time with Camille. We went and bought Halloween decorations and decorated the house. (Mom did this for us and I've always remember it) Then I took her to lunch and to play at a friends. When I asked her at bedtime her favorite part of the day she said, "Eating lunch with you mommy, your the best momma in the word - I love you sooo much. And Emmy and Daddy too." I know that little girl drama is on its way but for right now I'm just absorbing this time with her.
I feel like I need to get a Parenting 101 because I think the REALLY HARD stuff is just around the corner! I need to know how to show her that being independent is awesome. How to have self-love and not be upset with the image GOD gave us. How to be kind-hearted and have empathy. And the list goes on and on!!!
