Laura’s world is full of rainbows, butterflies, and dresses. As she is learning to read and write, I am learning more about her. She made this book during free time at her after school program. Sometimes, like tonight when a long day has dissolved six year old composure into whining, I hold onto her self expression as a reminder that the tantrums are passing. She moves farther away from her baby self every day.

    I really loved her self-portrait showing off those missing teeth! Actually, it was a bit scary ha ha!

    I really liked your last paragraph of reminding yourself how she’s growing up and to remain patient.
