Learning to Not Need to be Needed

The other morning my youngest did something that completely shocked me. Yes I know that by now NOTHING these people do should truly shock me, but she succeeded. I woke her up, telling her it was time to get ready for school, and the first thing out of her mouth was “I don’t want you to go on my field trip today.”. Yes, you read that right… the 4-year-old bluntly uninvited me to go to her K-4 class’ Ag in the Classroom field trip to a garden and lunch at a farmer’s market.

Singing in the Shower… Love this Child. “Angel of the Morning”

She will likely hate me for this one day, but it’s adorable and I recorded it.
