Alex's BIG day.

As I have mentioned before, Alex started pre-school last month. She goes 3 days a week for 4 and 1/2 hours and she loves it. Her class has about 10 children in it, 5 girls and 5 boys. Mornings are always tough around here, because Alex is NOT a morning person. This morning in an effort to get her motivated I agreed to let her wear one of her fancy dresses to school. This particular frock was very pink and girly. Alex even asked me to put her hair up, which never happens. Every day when I pick her up after work I ask how school went, etc. Tonight on the way home Alex announce that Nathan, an Chinese-American boy in her class, said she looked like a princess today. He then went on to say that maybe one day they could get married. I told Alex she needed to tell Nathan to talk to her Baba (Dan) about that first. Alex then very wisely told me one day she would get married when she found the right man. I can't believe she has already gotten her first marriage proposal.

Today was a big day on another front. I think Alex is finally figuring out that this is her forever family. Often in the past 3 months Alex has talked about going back to China. She talks about her friends and her other "mamas" there. But today, we were walking up the stairs from the basement and she notice a mark on the wood. She asked me who had drawn on the wood. I told her probably the people had built the house before Mama and Baba lived there. She corrected me by say "Mama, Baba and Alex". I said yes. Then she said "We live here. We are a family. I don't have to go back to China" and I said " No, baby. You don't have to go back to China. You can live here forever"
Or at least until she gets married...ha ha

I think that y'all are really going to have your hands full for the next several years.

I'm so glad that she doesn't want to go back to China because her Anya Rhonda doesn't know what she would do without her.

Love to all
Rhonda

I loved this post. It's a very precious moment for your baby to realize you are her forever family. There is nothing in the world like it.

Here's a standing ovation for some great parents!

With Love
