2010 Gratitude Challenge ~ Day 22


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?

  1. How sweet! It's great she has older siblings to "help!" My only girl is such a blessing in helping the littles to get going with their chores. Just today she taught her little brother how to clean the litterbox! A good thing. Blessings to you today!

  5. I love little girls, and if I'm lucky enough to adopt one one day, I'd love a little one like your "L". The perfect combination - a little bit of princess a sprinkle of toughness, and a big helping of fun and creative. It's not easy keeping up with the big kids, but it sounds like she's doing a great job. She sounds like a sweetheart.
