So, I have to share the sweetest story about Norah. I was so excited to get my new wall art sign hung up. The kids knew I was excited, and Andy was grumbling a little bit about having to hang it up RIGHT NOW. But, he did.
Norah was excited because she can read it. Let me preface the rest of the story by saying that my kids are always so excited to go visit their Grammy. They fight over her, they both want to snuggle her at the same time, and they interrupt each other while telling her stories. So, Norah was excited to tell her this story. She said, “Mommy got this sign that says, “we can do hard things,” and I did a hard thing. I found my library book.
Now, this probably wasn’t a big deal to anyone else but me. But, I was so completely happy and touched that Norah made that connection so quickly. She couldn’t find her library book all week, and we had really searched the house for it. I was hoping we would find it this weekend. I didn’t even drill the sign’s message into their heads, but I was so proud that she made the connection all by herself and actually, on her own, went and searched for the book, and realized that she could do hard things. It made my whole weekend!
