The other day while vacuuming Amara’s room, I got inspired to move the furniture around. It hadn’t been done in a long time and it is always so much fun to see Twursula react to having her bed moved to a different place in the room! She seems to be adjusting nicely.
Amara loved it too and she decided it was time to take down some of her old artwork, coloring book pages and pictures that are on the walls. She is planning to paint some new pictures or bring over some canvases she has already done in art class, she hasn’t decided for sure. But when we got to the door from her room to the garage, the door where the silly picture of her hangs, I made a special request that we leave that picture up. Every time I go out that door to the car or to do laundry I get a great big smile just looking at it and I really am not willing to give that up! Amara loves her Grandma and she was willing to leave it there. She started to reach for the handprint that is taped up next to it. I hadn’t asked her to leave it up there. First, she placed her hand over it and it disappeared! We were both amazed at how much her hand had grown and I suggested she make a new hand print to add to the door art! She loved the idea, grabbed paper, and scissors, felt tip markers, and headed for the dining room table.
Presenting the new door! How could I let her take that smiley face down?
