Some of you may know by now that Sissie, who is 7, is quite the unique individual. She thinks in ways which none of my other children think, and she isn't ruled by any of the rules of the universe!
If it's quiet for a moment, she'll say whatever is in her mind, and it's always, to a word, quite amusing.
She has such a queer and actually poetical way of saying things.
She can also be very quiet when the others are very boisterous....
I just love the way she talks and thinks.
As an example, the other day the girls and I went to the Goodwill, and I had stacks of things in my cart, stacked according to the child they were for, and she saw Sofia's pile and said "Sofia has chunks and chunks of clothes!"
To Sis, hair that comes down over your forehead in a long fashion is a "swirl".
Shoes that make tapping sounds are "paw paw shoes" because that's the sound their heels make.
She gets joy out of using the "mowlawner" and can go at it in the yard for hours with that thing!
Puffed sleeves are called "puff puffs".
And the other girls have adopted these sayings too.
Our Sis is so special. Some may say she's weird or even something's wrong with her, but just try and say that to us!
There is nothing wrong with her medically or developmentally speaking, she just sees things so differently than we do. If you told us something was wrong with her, you'd probably be picking your teeth up out of the street!
We love her so much and she is such a light in our house and a joy to our hearts.
She laughs all the time over everything, but she isn't a joker. She just has sparkle in her heart and it makes her laugh, kind of like the "snappy" Cherry Coke Icee we all had at Target recently.
I couldn't imagine our life or our home without our one-of-a-kind Sissie!
