Until now she has been rather coordinated, always right-side-out, and always with her tags in the back.
Then I mentioned, casually, that if she wanted, she could dress herself. It never occurred to me that I should have told her that earlier. She sees Maya dress herself every day. I assumed it was self-evident.
I assumed wrongly. In so many ways, Elle has come to think of herself as "the little sister," and she acts accordingly. With her impending big-sisterhood, I've been actively letting her take the lead in her life. This works especially well when Maya is off at school. Perhaps it is easier to forget that she's "the little sister."
This little sister is getting to be one big girl!
|Like her sister, Elle is drawn to color, but she prefers patterns as well... and always inside out and backwards! Beautiful!|
