This morning, Kamy told us that she was supposed to bring some things with her to school today for a little show and tell; something that tells about herself or what she likes to do. She told us right when we were shooing her out the door. So I was frustrated, and told her to run upstairs really quick and grab some things.
She came down about 30 seconds later with three things. A baseball, a little toy horse, and a dress-up bracelet. I didn't expect her to have grabbed those things. I thought she would grab her American Girl doll or a stuffed animal, or her CTR necklace, or her favorite book, some markers, or something like that. So when I saw these three things, and being frustrated with the lack of time, I said " Why'd you pick those three things, Kamy? They don't mean anything to you."
She looked up and said "I have the baseball because it reminds me of Keaton and Kolby and how we like to play with each other. I have the toy horse because it reminds me of you and daddy and how you grew up on a farm. I have the bracelet because it reminds me of how you like to look pretty and how Georgie likes to dress up like you."
Those are three really great things.
I gave her a hug.
