L turned 7 today, I can hardly believe it. We decorated her door with streamers and balloons that she ran through when she awoke. We also decorated the living room and kitchen.
|The boy next to L is our future son-in-law.|
She has tons of energy and loves to do anything outside. She is still taking Taekwondo and really likes it. She loves swimming and wants to take gymnastics as well. She spends a lot of time outside riding bikes or jumping on the trampoline. At school she likes to play basketball at recess.
L is very stubborn and hasn't been listening or following instructions at home lately. When she is asked to put her dirty clothes in the hamper, she takes them to the hamper and drops them on the floor beside it. When we ask her to clean her room, she shoves everything under her bed and into drawers instead of putting things away. She is fighting for her independence right now but doing it in the wrong ways. Unfortunately sometimes us making her conform to our rules causes her to have a mental breakdown. She will cry and scream and cannot be consoled or talked down. She must be left alone until she can relax and let it all go. At that point we are usually able to talk to her and get her to comply with our "demands". I hope one day she will use these tools for good:)
