4 today

When you spent a lot of time and effort into something and it turns out to be a disaster, you can even feel physically sick. I was out of ideas this past Sunday when our dear munchkin decided she didn't want to be part of her own birthday party.
This was the first time we did anything like this. We provided the spaces, the games, the toys, the food...but it was all too much for her.
She shows she doesn't like attention, and perhaps it was all too confusing for her...

*sigh* Moral of the story, we won't be doing this again in a hurry. To me it seems like the more you give your kids, the less they feel the need to ask and feel they need something else?
As parents we want to give, but sometimes it's best to let them ask. It is good to want stuff, it makes you strive for it.

On the kindy front, this has been a better week and hopefully she'll start to trust her teachers and worry about it less.
