I made a deal with the girls that they could take turns going to the grocery store with me. Usually, I thoroughly enjoy going alone, but I don't have many opportunities for one-on-one time with the girls. Sunday was Olivia's turn.
While we were wandering around the store, she found a journal and started begging me for it. I know she loves to write and I eventually gave in. She has been writing tid bits in it ever since.
Since she's only 7, she doesn't mind if I read it. In fact, she insists on it. It's quite good for my ego, too. ;) I love seeing how well she writes, how even if she spells a word wrong that it's easy to figure out. She's definitely a child full of love.... she mostly writes about people and things she loves right now.
I need to take some pictures of it, for memory's sake. To pull out and look at in a few years when she hates me and won't let me within 10 feet of her private thoughts. To remind myself that she was once sweet. =)
