If there is one thing that scares me the most about being her mom it's that I fear I'll do something to ruin or taint her sweet nature.
Tonight she got in trouble, Wyatt raised his voice at her (after patiently trying to tell her 10 times), and she stormed upstairs to her bedroom. She is incredibly sensitive, in good and bad ways. She hates getting in trouble, and is dramatic when she does. We thought she'd stay up there for a good pout, until we came up to talk to her.
But instead, she came down on her own after only a minute. She climbed on Wyatt's lap, gave him a kiss, and told him she was sorry, all by herself. About an hour later she told me this privately,
"Do you know why I came down mom?" "I did it because I learned that sometimes when people are rude to you, or raise their voices at you, it's because they just need a little more love in their life, so I wanted to come down and give dad some love".
She is so smart. And we absolutely struck gold with her.
