Interview with Maya and her card for me

Today Maya made me her own card....she was inspired by Mariam's and Fatimah's cards from my classes that I got on Friday. (Kicki: please tell Mariam!) Pappa helped with the writing.It' s a hanging bird! Check out her creativity! It's a sculpture!

She wants more than anything just to see my SMILE
she said...that's why she made it.
Oh, the joy she gives me!
Gotta concentrate on LAUGHTER again!
I had a good morning but have been in paranoia thoughts all afternoon....took a 2 hour nap but that didn't help. Maya played at a friend's house until 2 of their kids started to throw up! Hope it's not "stomach flu"...don't need that at our house for any of us!
But this little bird....really makes me puff up with happiness!
I'll have to carry it around the house with me!
Tonight we put the worry dolls into the little box again.
I hope her worry doesn't trouble her tonight so she sleeps well.
We will share the bed again tonight, my husband has night shift and we can hold hands.
Last night I had the cat all over me with his loud comforting!

I must try this, although I am a bit reluctant as when Ian was about just under 2 we were singing in the car...our version of Old MacDonald and it morphed into our family and when they sang that there was a mummy on the farm what did I get...."with a work, work here and a work, work there...."

Kids always tell the truth. I love kids!!!

Maya has some great answers. Something I have been considering is writing both Natalie and Ian a letter and just putting it away. I want to tell them what is in my heart and how much they bring to Rob and I.
