I picked up Miss Isla from daycare today and she was in panic when she couldn’t find the drawing of her daddy that she did. She refused to leave until her teacher found it, she was almost in tears. She is such a sweetheart, I love how happy she is when she sees me.
As Isla gets older we’ve noticed her perception of others’ emotion has really developed. She would randomly ask me if I’m happy whenever she sees that I’m frowning. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t tell her how much mummy and daddy loves her. While I was brushing her teeth she said to me “Don’t be angry anymore ok?” She definitely knows how to melt my heart, she’s even apologising for things that she doesn’t have to.
It’s not hard to get frustrated with your kids especially when they’re not listening to you or they’re in that whiny state, in the last 5 weeks I’m pretty sure my tolerance level has kicked up a notch.
