Spotlight on the middle…

We have the most energetic, spunky, fun-loving middle child. She can be so full of sunshine and laughter… her open smile sinks deep into my heart.

When life gets a bit serious, little j is often there to turn it upside down. She sings to her own tune, and can go from 0 to 100 faster than fast… running, climbing, or bouncing back from a meltdown. She is engaging and can be positively thrilled with the situations around her… And, the purity of her emotion at 4 and 3/4 years old is rich and intense…


One day this emotion will be tempered and less extreme… but, then, will we also lose some of the purity of these smiles and joy filled moments?

Little j is courageous. Loving. Radiant. She puts 100% into everything she does, getting completely focused and sinking her teeth in.

I choose today to enjoy her spunk, and to take her heavier moments in stride… being there to carry her through. Being there.

Seeing the ebbs and flows in such a delightful child. A truly special gift.
