Since Jesse works late on Thursdays and it was warm out today, I figured we'd head over there for a bit (and by that I mean an hour and a half). We did our 15 minute lap around the smaller part of the lake and then headed over to the playground. Watching her play always makes me so happy. She's such a sweet little girl. Any time someone is doing something that she wants to try, she stands there and waits her turn. She doesn't even complain or get sad when someone cuts her off or jumps in front of her. She just turns and looks at me and says It's okay! Wait my turn! Here's my little 2 year old being cut in front of or pushed by the other kids (all ages) and just saying "It's okay. I'll wait". I can't describe in words how insanely proud this makes me.
Today a little 3 year old boy wanted to go on the swings, so I told her it was his turn since she already had been on them twice and he hadn't (she's met him before and he was nice to her, making sure the bigger kids didn't push her around). So she just walked over to the older kid swings and asked to go on that one instead.
Of course, now that we're 2, we want to try all the cool big kid things.
Can we talk about how this gives me a heart attack every time:
