Because motherhood will never be a perfect science


on September 17, 2012

Kids are so different aren’t they? Some kids like to create and build. Some like to dig and invent. Some kids like to be the center of attention, while some are quite happy to exist outside of the limelight and just be still. Some kids are active and good at all kinds of sports. Some kids are pretty laid back and don’t like to do as much as their parents might like….and then there’s my daughter.

Meet Diva girl; a 5 year old dynamo. She runs and talks a mile a minute. She runs to sit down, she runs to lay down; she runs EVERYWHERE! She can ask you the same question 5 times before you’ve even had the chance to formulate an answer. Her energy knows no bounds.

But I should have known that this was who she would be….since the day she was born.

It’s all in the delivery my friends.

Here are the facts: my labour was 4 ½ hours, by the time we got to the hospital the lovely nurses who were just humouring a new mother to be ended up almost knocking their selves unconscious while trying to get me to the delivery room. Fifteen minutes after I got to the hospital, we first met the Diva! At 2 months, I took her to get her pictures done and lying on her tummy, she held her head up and smiled right into the camera. Needless to say the photographer was very impressed. Even learning to walk was like trying to grab the wind! She was determined to move past the normal development milestones to get where she was going. At 18 months, people kept asking how old she was, because she could have a conversation with you as if she was 3. I could go on…

But basically, Diva girl has been in a hurry to get somewhere ever since she was a baby. It is commonplace to hear someone in our house yelling ‘WALK!’ at least 10 times a day. When she started Jr. Kindergarten she was in a combined class (JK/SK) so most of her friends were older than her. So when they started losing their teeth she was quite upset to see her perfect white teeth still holding strong and refusing to let go. “Mommy, it’s not fair that Shauna’s tooth came out and mine didn’t!” Well…one day while helping her to brush what do I see? A TOOTH! Yes, even her teeth are in a rush, her baby teeth were still intact but there are 2 of her permanent teeth already waiting to take their rightful place as residents in her mouth. It’s so funny to see her with 2 rows, but it doesn’t surprise me. I tell her to slow down but she just rolls her eyes…

She was probably doing that in my tummy too.

Yup, the delivery says it all. We haven’t even talked about Baby girl…..
