Sareny's turn to shine
Sareny loves drawing, and I think she is pretty good at it. When she showed me a picture she drew of her Build-a-Bear, I just had to take pictures.
I was surprised at how accurate it looked, other than the curly dark hair, which she obviously added.
Sareny has always been Miss Independent. If there is even the slightest hope that she can do something herself, she is going to try. A couple of weeks ago, I was surprised to see a little braid in her hair. I couldn't believe she would attempt something like this--I still can't braid my own hair!
I don't think it looks half bad for a first try, ecpecially when you're only 6. Anyway, she continues to amaze me and dazzle me daily with the things she comes up with.
Here's a few of the silly things she has said lately.
"I can't marry Isaac, because he's my brother. I'll marry Rhys." (he's her first cousin.) "That's okay, right mom?"
I have a picture of me as a baby that I have always loved. I was only a couple months old, and my mom had curled the top of my hair over her finger in a kind of swoop. (You know the hairstyle I'm talking about.) Sareny looked at the photo and asked, "how come you have a snarl on top of your head??"
We've recently been looking at houses, and about a month ago, as we drove through a neighborhood, Sareny said, "Ooooh, a cul-de-sac!" And she was right too. Apparently these little sponges are listening to everything we say.
I stay at home with 4 beautiful children--3 girls and 1 boy. Sareny is 9, Isaac is 6, Finley is 4, and baby Keeley is one! I've been married to my best friend for 15 years now, and we're still happy. Life is beautiful!
