#1311: December 17, 2017 *finding the perfect Christmas tree*finishing another painting*ice skating...well the last half of ice skating* watching her refuse help of any kind, cling to the wall, cry, stomp, pout, say things she really doesn’t mean and then all of a sudden figure it all out and not want to leave* . . . This must have been what it was like to raise me 27 years ago. Thanks Mom and Pops for calling it strong willed instead of down right stubborn.
