Too often I become frustrated or worry about the things you aren't doing or don't seem to show interest in, or the fact that you are so shy. I am sorry.
Today during lunch we had another discussion about organic food and why we found a caterpillar on our kale and why that is a good thing.
Then, you sat for a LONG time staring and talking about that caterpillar and teaching your brother how to be gentle with it; and I was grateful.
Grateful for a little girl who may not be interested in picking up a paintbrush at the moment, but for a sweet girl who has forever been a lover and respecter of living things. A girl who thinks, asks questions, and observes a lot for her age.
