She loves her bears,her blankets, books,puzzles, hats, dance, her friend Ryah, and of course her family.
And how do we know she loves these things? Well one way is that her favorite things, in Liza's view, need to be with her as much as possible. She frequently packs up her backpack with one of her blankets, a book or two, current favorite bear, and a sippy cup for good measure, when we leave the house. She knows that these things will have to stay in the car, but she insists on bringing them anyway. Playing outside? Usually with a bear, at least one bear. Reading a book? that would require a bear and a blanket. Practicing dance? That one needs a bear. ( given their teacher has them practise one of their dances with stuffed animal) As I think about it, most often you will find her with at least one, if not all, of these things in her possession. But to really know is something is at the top of Liza's list you need to know what she want in bed with her. From the begining she has filled her sleeping space with her favorite things. Liza literally plays herself to sleep. Sometimes I wonder how she manages with so many bumpy things. Once in a while I put her favorite things back to where I think they should go, only to have them return once again to her bed. Tonight I peaked in on her and saw something new.
loves them. She asked to play with them first thing this morning, and again during quiet time, and again this evening. Apparently that wasn't enough and she brought them to bed.
Notice the books she also insists on bringing to bed? Missing from this picture is a parental unit. Liza campaigns for this frequently, but parental units sleep in their own bed. As a compromise Daddy will often snuggle with her for a while. I love this silly, cute smiley little girl.
( yes I have taken care of the electric cord situation. It's to the Christmas lights in her house.)
