I admit I’m having a hard time making the transition from mothering little kids to mothering big kids.
Eloise is providing intensive training for me but admittedly I am a slow learner. Perhaps I am just a reluctant learner. Perhaps I am just not ready.
More popular music, hipper clothing, grown-up hair, lip gloss.
She also puts her baby sister in her high-chair, gets her ready for her bath, puts her in her pajamas and reads her a bedtime story.
When I take a shower she tells me that she is in charge and will take care of everything.
And she does.
She even does dishes. But doesn’t change diapers.
I find her in different corners of the house reading books. She keeps a book in almost every room and usually has 4 going at once. She loves to talk to me about some of the stories but not about others.
I found a picture she drew of a heart with a boys name in it.
I am not sure she knows she is teaching me far more than I am teaching her at this point.
