She thinks of everything
Some days are tough with Alyce. Those days, like today, she whines, complains, selectively listens, and schemes. Those days are challenging.
But then I open her bedroom closet and I find Piglet. He has a comfy pillow, a few good books, and a watermelon snack. Most of all, he has been given a quiet place to rest. On days like today, Alyce is lots of things, and I don't always know how to be the best parent for her. But when I see how kind and thoughtful she is to her Piglet, I relax a bit and realize that she's doing just fine.
Because a good book and watermelon is all you really need.
