Talking 'bout my girl...
Scott had a little chat with Annelise the other day and asked her some questions. Here are her answers, in bold.
My mom cooks the best spaghetti in the whole wide world. I would buy my mom a stuffed animal, a small pink flamingo. My mom doesn't like when I do something bad. What I like best about my mom is she loves me so much. My mom likes my dad to go to work and eat healthy food and vitamins and drink lots of water and get good rest.
I got so tickled when I read through her answers. Scott promised it was 100% all her. It's always interesting to hear what she thinks, you never know what she is going to say.
Here are a few other Annelisms I want to remember.
When asked while eating where her manners were, Annelise replied, "They're in my pocket."After going to bed the other night, Annelise obviously started to ponder the serious issues on her mind. Soon she was crying. When we asked her what was wrong she said ,"We're going to be on Y next week, there's only two letters left!!! I don't want the alphabet to end! I won't be in Mrs. O's class much longer!!" Sob, sob, wail, wail, hug, hug. Oh sweetie.
I imagine as her little brain winds down at bedtime ideas, thoughts and fears pop into the foreground of her mind. Sometimes she thinks about missing her Meemaw or going away to college someday (remember she's only 4.5) and gets so upset. With a little reassurance she settles down and works through it.
I am always touched to see how sensitive and caring she is. One day she got in the car after school with red rimmed eyes, just upset all over the place. When I asked her what was wrong she explained that two of her friends in class had their pin pulled to red and were getting notes sent home, she was worried about them getting a spanking. Oh the empathy.
I love her outgoing exuberant personality. Clingy she is not. She is such a social whirlwind, a force of friendliness. My Girl.
