|This is my spunky girl, Hope, she is 5 years old|
Hope has such a spunky personality. I use the term spunky, but really I mean "stubborn", "hard headed", "strong-willed"...you get my point. Spunky.
She is the one child that I have the hardest time dealing with. She is our daddy's girl...She will say anything to make him happy:-) (even that she likes the Habs...booo!)

I think she just soaked up the one on one time with me. It isn't often that I get to treat her to a morning out, even if it only takes 15 minutes. I was thinking that maybe she was having behavioural issues because when she was just 2, a time when she needed us, we were busy at the hospital so much with Faith. We thought, because she was so young, she wouldn't notice, but I think the opposite happened. Life happens and you gotta go with the flow...so I think we are going to start setting up regular dates with her, while she seems to need a bit more...
|She loved the idea that we went away on a family trip and spent |
some special time with just the older ones - and she was older!
After our shopping trip, I told Hope that we get to stop for a treat on the way home. I offered to buy her an Egg Nog milkshake from McD's, because of how much she loves egg nog...she said no. So, next I suggested a McFlurry...that is a huge treat. She wasn't interested in that either. Instead, this time, I asked her what she wanted.
She said she wanted Fruitopia. Yup, that is what she asked for. Out of the whole menu. Fruitopia. I asked her if she was sure, I mean, there was ice cream, and stuff, and she chose Fruitopia. I said, ok that is what we will get. Then she said...
And a burger too, actually...a happy meal!! I want a toy!!
This is my Hopie, she knows what she wants...and how to get it!!
