eloise: You want to dress up in your “Wendy” dress pretty much every day. “I’m Wendy today”, you say. But you act a lot more like Peter Pan. You are asserting your independence. Bossing others around, doing things on your own and not needing our help and showing us some very big emotions. We are trying to be patient and gentle through this phase, but some days we all struggle. But, as one of your favorite books reads, “I love you when you’re angry and cross your arms and pout. I love you when you’re wild and yell and scream and shout. I love you any way you feel, no matter what you do. I love you any way you are. I love you because you’re you!” (I love you Because you’re you by Liza Baker)
Masterpiece. Enjoyed also the poem. My father used to say, “there was a little girl who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead, and when she was good she was very very good, but when she was bad she was horrid”.
Beautiful Summer, your photo and your words. Hang in there mama (and daddy), it is a tough phase, but it does pass. Just keep breathing 🙂 xo
