Roxie's new friend the Wall
When ever I leave Roxie alone on the floor there are two things she goes to:
1. Martin's Toys
2. The wall and she sit and tries to climb the wall but when she is unsuccessful she will sit and talk to the wall. I believe the wall has become her new best friend.
If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I'd finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I'd do more hugging and less tugging.
