Parenting Pepper is one of my greatest delights and often one of my greatest challenges. I am constantly trying to balance the needs of the three kids which often tips in Cooper favour and has done quite a lot these last few months. Pepper has been demanding more attention so I have had to be even more conscious of dividing my time.
When I look at her I see a vibrant individual who knows what she wants to do. I also see someone who is very competitive but equally empathetic who thrives on the accomplishments of her peers and brothers. She is loud, outspoken, humorous,entertaining, caring and gentle all rolled into one. She is an amazing sister and very precious daughter.
Next year she is heading to school. It is Prep here in Victoria. Five days a week 9-330. I filled out the enrollment forms last week. I am excited for her but I will also really miss her being here at home. She is more than ready to head into a classroom and is excited to make new friends and spend the time at school with Coop.
Here is a picture she drew. It's a new house plan for our family. We all have our own room including Andrew who has the garage! There is a pool, garden, toilet, car space and flowers to pick.
Here she spent all week trying to master the numbers 2 & 5 she was so thrilled when she did it.
Pepper, I am so proud of you, everyday, every minute ( well except those minutes when you stamp your foot at me!).
