Grace has put her bet on the table: Friday, three weeks from now her little brother is coming. That is her prediction which just came out of the blue. It pegs her to 14 September.
This afternoon Grace asked Donné, "How are you feeling mommy?" to which she replied, "Hmmm, I'm not feeling so well," (she's been feeling a bit nauseus and uncomfortable). So Grace says, "It's okay mommy. You stay in bed, I watch two episodes of Mickey Mouse Club."
When Grace climbed into the car after school today she settled down into her seat, pointed out the window and said, "That's my school! It's a great school."
Grace has always loved sand art and has recently had a fresh surge of interest in it. What is new this time is her focus and ability to do it on her own.
Grace has never really been into playing with a ball too much. She has always tended to loose interest fairly quickly, but recently it seems like her ball skills are coming in. Now she is loving throwing balloons, hitting a ball with a bat, and (this morning) throwing, kicking, pushing and rolling a beach ball. It is fun to see her exploring these more and having fun playing with them. It’s fun for me too – even if I’m not particularly good at it all.
