My poor little monkey woke up with a stomach bug. She’s rarely sick, knock wood- and refused to believe there was anything wrong with herself.
She DID have time this morning to want to make math and science vids from her 4 yr old perspective.
#1 tells the difference between googol and Google:
#2 is kind of all about the tastebuds of the tongue…
She’s so cute, even when she’s not feeling well! ❤
My 4 yr old made a “Kawaii Kitty” toy for herself that we designed and she helped sew and stuff the thing.
She has her own tiny sewing machine, but she used the big one today.
Maisie (after using the big sewing machine): “OOOOH, IT’S SOOO FAST!”
Here are her vids- I think she’s adorable.
As she says “Please press LIKE and subscribe” (Actually, she’s just cool with the thumbs up thingies)
and her last video of the night
Four year old Maisie explains “The Bones of the Middle Ear and How We Hear” (and yes, she needs her hair brushed):
And, in this one, she tries to explain how airplanes fly:
I think my kid is stinking cute, super smart, though her English could use some improving (we’re multilingual)- and that EVERY PARENT/HUMAN should watch or let their kids watch Storybots on Netflix. She adores this show and learns SO much.
I am packing now for the hotel. Tomorrow is surgery. I’m dragging my feet.
I am scared to death.
Tomorrow will be a solar eclipse in Cancer, incidentally, my 12th house.
Also, an ode to the Da Vinci robot that will be eviscerating me:
Maisie was 10 months old this week and the separation anxiety phase has been in full swing for a while now. I am never more than a few feet away from her at any given time. We have been practicing attachment parenting with this girly. She’s not a great fan of carriers. She NEEDS TO BE IN A ROOM FULL OF people. This girl LIVES to entertain.
If anyone tries to leave the room or go home or pee, she melts DOWN.
Today she was in rare form, poor baby.
Exhibit ONE, when my dad attempted to leave the porch to refill his coffee cup:
Papa returns, but she is still ticked off that he left… I think my dad is onto something when he says she doesn’t want to lose any of her entourage:
The world finally ends when her father leaves for work:
I am open to ANY suggestions regarding how to survive this stage.
How do/did YOU handle this separation anxiety phase?
I don’t recall it being this difficult with her brothers.
