Sara's Birthday Interview

Here is Sara's 4th Birthday Interview

Now for fun, here are some fun facts about our little Sara Bear.

  • Sara dresses herself.  She also does her own hair.  She has a very particular style and always knows just what she wants.  Sometimes it is a mess, but other times she puts together super cute outfits that I never would have thought of.  I can see major fashion sense in her future!
  • Sara is a drinker.  If she could have chocolate milk or juice for all her meals, she would.  
  • This one isn't as fun- but Sara  has had some problems with night terrors and very vivid dreams.  We are learning how to best calm her down when they happen, but I wish I had some better ideas of how to avoid them in the first place.
  • Jack and Sara have started getting very close.  They have to play with each other while Emma is at school, and they are starting to get really cute together.  This is a recent development, and is a welcome change from their frequent fighting or mutual avoidance of each other.  It makes my heart happy.
  • Sara likes to tell stories.  She loves telling me about what happened at school or church or while she was playing in her room alone.  Many of these stories are obvious exaggerations, (unless birds really do sneak into her room and tell her how pretty her hair is) but I love her creativity.
  • She loves to color and draw.  She will sit for hours just coloring in her coloring books or drawing me pretty pictures.  I am hoping this will lead into more effort for her writing abilities, but she just hasn't been interested in that yet.
  • Sara is a princess.  Through and through.  She likes all things sparkly with ruffles.  She is such a girl, and I love it.
  • This little girl can be a little manipulative.  She doesn't like to work or clean if she can help it, and she has found lots of ways to get out of work.  Ross and I are on to her and know how to get what we need, but Emma and Jack are not as quick on the draw, and they end up doing a lot of her work load if we aren't there to make sure Sara puts in her fair share of effort.  She takes after one of her aunts in this, and while I think it is smart and shows how clever she can be, it can be pretty frustrating.
  • Sara is photogenic.  Very photogenic.  Her big blue eyes and soft features are incapable of taking a bad picture.
  • She is still a Daddy's girl.  She and Ross have a very special bond.  Ross understands her in a way I don't think I will ever be able to.  It is really tender to see how much they love each other.
  • Sara is shy.  Much more shy than Emma ever was.  She is a ball of light and energy once she gets comfortable, but until then, she is a quiet little mouse of a girl.  
  • Sara is a Sunbeam now, but still isn't quite sure she likes that.  She asks me every week when she gets to go back to her real class.  
Basically, our little girl is growing like a weed and is getting prettier and smarter every day.
