Adia is my spirited kid which means she's very opinionated, loves to argue and tell me how it is and has
Rasa's getting over a pretty bad cold and feeling sorry for herself. Who can blame her, it sucks being sick, especially with colds that don't want to go away. She had a tough day today so I was asking her what we needed to do to make her feel better. Frozen yogurt first and then a nice warm bath were her requests. Adia decided just Rasa should take a bath by herself so she could have the whole big bathtub (something Adia just experienced for the first time in her life yesterday). While Rasa was in there Adia kneeled next to the tub and completely entertained her for 45 minutes. She told her to make bubble drawings and praised each one Rasa created. She handed her toys and helped her make bathtub tea. She danced like a ballerina for her and handed her cups to rinse her hair with.
I realized after spending a very trying morning at the clinic with the girls that Adia really helps me out. She makes things lighter, she knows when to be really good and how to be a good helper. She knows innately what Rasa needs and how to take care of her when I'm puzzled. Adia knows when I've had it how to flash me a crooked smile to make me laugh. She's just a joy. She truly is and all of the grey hairs she causes me with her spirited nature are worth the rest of what she offers not only me but our entire family.
I love you little Eya :) You are SO. MUCH. FUN.
