Dainty Girl or Tomboy ???
Today, the 13th, is Mercirita’s day - she was born on January 13, 2009! When a baby is born we count by “months” until they reach one year old, then we count by years, well, most do. The Cuenca’s, well, we acknowledge the day. We don’t have a party every month or give presents but we do acknowledge the date the kids were born each month. Obviously today is Little Merci’s day!
She copies EVERYTHING her Big Brother, Adonijah, says & does - even if she’s not big enough yet. She tells him “girls first” and is sure to get her fair share and then some!!! She is the first of my six CUENCSTARZ to regress because of having a new baby. Potty-training and sleeping in our bed are the big issues. She has no interest in “the pot” & refuses to sleep in her bed.
Now, she is interested in all things “girly” & “boyish”... baby dolls, barbie dolls, dress-up, make-up, skateboards and wrestling. When she’s playing “girly” stuff she runs around saying “I’m so beautiful!” and I LOVE IT - confidence is an IMPORTANT trait in today’s society. When she’s playing “boyish” stuff she flexes her arms & shows you her muscles, or what she calls muscles!
Something Special In October???
We went to the Halloween Spirit Store to look at costumes & she was terrified. When I finally got her to look at costumes she picked Alice, Alice In Wonderland. Very cute, right??? Not so much, she’s already torn it practically in half - look for yourself, Alice In Wonderland.
Thank you so much for acknowledging Merci with us, I’m sure she’ll enjoy reading her comments when she’s a little older.
Until Next Time...
