Anyone who is a regular reader of this blog will know that Mia has been a Challenge. Yes, with a capital C.
I don’t know if it was a girl thing or a second child thing or just her huge personality. But boy did we feel every minute of that parenting journey.
Then she turned 7, and everything changed. Almost over night. Something switched in her. Something clicked into place. Like she finally found her comfortable place.
And she is the most delightful, interesting, engaging and fun girl to be around now.
Still spirited mind you, but then every girl should have a healthy dose of feistiness in them in my humble opinion.
So this is for those parents with young girls who make them question whether they’ll ever make it through another year of tearing your hair out.
Yes you will. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
