Today I'm thankful for L, my 4 yo princess. She's an outgoing, people-loving ham. She loves to GO anywhere, and hates to be left out of anything. She's the other "one of those" I referred to earlier -- the extroverted entertainer.
She says the funniest things, and keeps us laughing with her little 'tude. Sometimes the things that come out of her mouth are just so unusual for a 4 year old. I suppose that is the difference between a 4 yo girl with teenage sisters, and a 4 yo girl with only young sisters, as we'd previously had.
She loves her family, though she can really "get into it" with her 2 yo and 6 yo brothers at times. She's ornery but sweet. She loves to color and "do school", though she's having to re-learn WHERE she's allowed to color at the moment. (In fact, almost all of our art supplies are currently in time-out due to her artistic experimentation.)
L loves nothing more than being allowed to help in the kitchen. 13 yo R will often allow L to help her bake a snack for the family. She's a princess, but not too girly. She can keep up with her brothers outside pretty well, and she's tough. If they cross her, she'll stand up for herself.
L is another blessing in our lives. Where would we be without the laughter she inspires, and her loving hugs?
