My sweet girl in her Big Sister Sweater.
Poor sweet girl. She’s been having a bit of a hard time of it lately. She’s not enjoying school the way she used to. She’s been feeling a bit left out, telling me that one lunch time she just sat under the tree on her own because no one would play with her. Apparently lots of the children in her class have colds at the moment, and one of her classmates, that happens to also be our next door neighbour, told everyone that they all caught their colds from my girl and it was all her fault. According to M. the children won’t play with her because they don’t want to get sick.
Breaks my heart. I’m so proud of her though. She is so resilient, trying to be anyhow.
Today her Dada bought her some pretty hankies (his idea). Tonight I embroidered her name on them. We’re hoping that it is a little bit of pretty to cheer her up. Something to keep with her in her pocket, a reminder of how much we love her.
This girl of mine is an amazing big sister. She is an awesome little sister too. She cares for all her brothers. She shares with them, plays with them, thinks of them, laughs with them. They all love her so much too. We all do.
Playing along with Leonie.
