11 years, 5 months.
While I do my best to encourage you to to find ways to be more helpful and independent, I am noticing that you yourself are naturally wanting to become more of a responsible person.
This past week, Mommy bought a big umbrella for our back deck. You insisted that I not open the box once it came to our house from Amazon.
Instead, you wanted to be the one to open it, and unpack it, and to help Grandpa Joe set it up.
And you did!
You were so proud to be the project manager of the event!
