She is the most loving child and so imaginative, and fun.
She keeps us laughing with her "Allie-isms", as her mother calls them.
When she was five, she told me some astonishing fact, and when I asked her how she knew it, she simply replied, "Everyone knows I'm the smartest kid in the world, Grandma Linda!"
A year ago, she informed me that she's not the same girly-girl princess-style little girl any more, "now I'm more into artistic clothes and cool stuff". She is just funny and lighthearted, and makes everyone smile!
She loves decorating, designing and she's so creative. Recently she made her own jewelry organizer, from a discarded doll-house part she found in the basement. She sews with her other grandma and made an outfit and modeled it in the 4-H Fashion Show this year. She's busy now making back-to-school notebooks, embellished with the latest wild and crazy duct-tapes!
|She got an I Phone, and here's the latest Instagram photo she posted!. |
"I'm sexy and I know it!"
Now it's her day to shine, she's turning 12!
Happy Birthday, Allie!
You are such a delight to all who know you
and an inspiration to me!
Clearly, her parents are doing a marvelous job!
I thought I'd share this creed. I had it posted in my
kid's rooms when they were little, it's timeless,
and good for Grandma Linda to read again and practice!
Children Learn What They Live
If children live with....
....criticism, they learn to condemn.
....hostility, they learn to fight
....ridicule, they learn to be shy
....shame, they learn to feel guilty
....tolerance, they learn to be patient
....encouragement, they learn confidence
....praise, they learn to appreciate
....fairness, they learn justice
....security, they learn to have faith
....approval, they learn to like themselves
....acceptance and friendship,
they learn to find love in the world.
