Sophia is learning about her family. We have been reading a series of amazing books by Todd Par that are themed around all kinds of families. The other day we were out at Starbucks and Sophia put her arms around Susan and said “I love you so much Mom” then she came over, hugged me and said “I love you so much mama” and then she looked up at the people around us waiting for the coffees and said “My family”.
She hasn’t learned to censor her words for fear of disapproval; she loves with pure abandon from a place that knows no judgment. Sophia has since introduced us as her family a couple more times to strangers. She is so full of love that people can do nothing but celebrate along with her. It is an amazing thing to see.
