My Second Child
It's been all about Avery lately on this little blog of mine (with a few "me" rants) but the personalities of our three older children are still in high gear. Regarding Lucy...after spending two weeks with 'Lucy, full throttle', my mother said, upon leaving, "Now, I know what you're talking about". Yes, you cannot understand this girl until you've spent some serious time with her--and, even then, you cannot understand this girl. Also, heard from my mom over the course of the week, "I just can't figure her out." She has that effect on people: flabbergastation (is that a word? it is now.)
Last night I fed the kids Italian meatballs, sugar snap peas, wheat toast, and orange slices...Lucy, however, was having "butterfly". I don't see the resemblance, but who am I to criticize her imagination--it is at least one thing she really has going for her. Love her, love her, because I'm at a loss for an alternative.
