Elina has a very well defined sense of herself. Of course she changes everyday, but she knows who she is and what she wants. She is herself.
Elina loves to Rock and Roll. recently at her dance recital rehearsal she cried when they played the “piggy song” they were supposed to dance to. Why did she cry? When asked she said “I just wanted to rock and roll!” Oh and at the actual recital, lets just say she rocked and rolled!
You can’t go for a ride in the car with Elina with out hearing from the back seat “go faster, go faster I like it when zoomy car goes fast like weeeeeee.” (Puts hands and feet in the air) And then sometimes “when I grow up I am going to go fast. I want a red motorbike!”
Are you starting to feel overwhelmed? I am.
Elina LOVES tattoos. She especially like older boys with tattoos, the back ally neighbour who came to help us with our deck… She ran up to him and swooned “I love your tattoos.” When he said “you shouldn’t ever get a tattoo it really hurts” she folded her arms across her chest, turned in a huff, the bottom lip came out and she ran to me crying. “That boy says I can’t get a tattoo.”
We are researching strict all girls schools and bracing for impact. This is 3! We hear all sorts, “don’t worry she’ll grow out of it” I’m not taking any chances, meds out of shot glasses stops now! Back to sucking them individually out of syringes.
I love my wild child. I love that she is a rock and roll, Lego playing, tea party hosting, princess. Well that is her today, anyway.
Oh Elina has also told me her very first career aspiration. She wants to trim trees, be a “Tree Cutter”. She wants to ride in the bucket.
