Megan is our middle child in the bunch; she is also directly in the middle of a bunch of boys. Most people would think, wow, she must be tough to be in the middle of so many boys. Many have asked “is she a Tom-Boy?” Nope- not my Megan. She is VERY Feminine! She is a little girly girl that loves to wear pink, dance with her big sister, cook in the kitchen with mommy, play the piano (which she loves doing 5-6 times a day–making her music up now- and its really good), and do any kind of craft or art.
I am very aware that being the middle of 5-6 kids she could possibly “fall through the cracks” and so I am purposefully pursuing bringing her up under my wing. I decided a couple weeks ago to reassign the buddy system to the kids. Megan gets to be the new baby’s buddy!
She is SO excited and this is a way to make sure I spend more purposeful time with her like I did the others. This may be her last chance to see mommy give birth so she is excited to experience that with me, learn how to change a newborns diapers, help with baths, help keep him “happy” when he gets older, etc…When Kelsey & Austin went to Art Camp 2 weeks ago, she was pretty upset she wasn’t old enough to go… so one of the days we they were gone I took her on a date to the Ceramic Cafe. We had so much fun just talking and making Kelsey’s birthday present together!
Here she is painting a tea cup and saucer for her sister’s 10th birthday.
