I was getting annoyed with Lala at dinner tonight. She was relentless, and I had a moment where I wondered the last time either Allison or I finished a sentence. She continued in that mode for a while, then dropped this note.
our brilliant, sometimes-maddening, hilarious, contentious, loving, pugnacious, gracious, tough, funny 5-yr-old has taken to leaving little guerilla notes like this (this particular note left minutes after being banished from her brothers' room for "rubbing her bottom on my blanket! her REAL bottom!")
It was a good reminder that she's exploring and expressing and pushing, but that's what she's supposed to do. I tried to right my attitude after, and we had a sweet bedtime story and end to our evening. I'm thankful for tangible reminders of the full scope of her spirit.
