Annie Boo: Age 4!

I truly can't believe my Annie girl is 4! I have to admit 3 wasn't our best year. I think it was hard for her. Three is a hard year (or so it has been in our house) and then on top of a challenging year, she had to find out where she fit in as the middle child and not the only girl. It is so hard to learn how to parent, let alone, how to parent each child differently because each child is SO different. Once I realized that Ann Mason did things WAY differently than Palmer and that she was much more intense in everything she did I realized I had to find a way to not "Dull her Sparkle". I don't want to take away these amazing characteristics that she has like independence, strong will, intelligence, wit, determination, etc... I want to find a way to nurture them but not let them run the house. I don't know if this makes any sense at all! haha I want Ann Mason to be all of these things and more, but I want her to find a constructive way to be all of these things that doesn't include ruling the household and taking all of our energy!

I have always LOVED the book Five Languages of Love (THIS website gives a perfect summary!) It talks about what your love language is and Ann Mason's is quality time and words of affirmation. Once I realized this and started spending one on one time with her and only really focusing on the positive things with her rather than always saying "Stop, don't do that and No!" our relationship has dramatically changed! In the last month alone I would say we have done a 180!

I love this girl more than words. Her energy is astounding I just look at her in awe! She is also 4 going on 15. She LOVES clothes, fashion, dressing up, matching accessories, shoes, etc... She is too smart for her own good and she is beautiful inside and out. She knows what she wants but she is still gracious when going after it. She is thoughtful at the little things like she will notice when I did something to her room and say thank you or sometimes just tell me I am a good mommy. She loves to be social, she LOVES it! We are in serious trouble! This girl is on "fire"!
