my big girl
i couldn't be more proud of emma. Today at the playground emma dealt with some "rough" behavior from other kids and she behaved like such a little grown up. I don't know if it is because she understands what i tell her, or she just doesn't care. Her playmate has really gotten into pushing her and not sharing. Emma still hasn't reached that phase yet and so far isn't showing signs of being too possessive. I mean she def. has her favorite books and toys, but Ive seen them be snatched from her and yes, she cries, but she always manages to compose herself. Well, Emma loves to push strollers and in return be pushed. She also loves inexpensive umbrella strollers. It amuses me as I have spent a tiny fortune on nice strollers yet she rather ride a smart car than a Benz. Anyway, today at the playground her playmate had his stroller and she was sitting on it and twice she got pushed off. She of course was upset but she managed to brush it off in a nano second and when i told her that it was not her stroller so she had to hand it back to the owner, she seemed to understand . I do not condone pushing but it was all iIcould think of at that moment to make Emma ok. She seems to understand when I tell her that the toys she see at the playground are not hers and she should leave them alone. She will stop and stare at them and then walk away. It really fills me with pride that at her tender age she is so wonderful. She loves running all over the playground and is so fearless. I need to start up with my pictures once more.
