my sophie had a dream the other day. as in an "i have a dream" kind of dream. and that was to be "Will". now... everyday she tries and tries and tries to "be like Will" (her big brother) but sadly, she usually ends up frustrated and disappointed. however, earlier this week her dream got a little more tangible.this book about a little boy named "Will", of course. And he was amazing, of course. then we got to the page above of "Will" flying over tall buildings. she immediately put the book down and got right to work. her dream was in sight.
she made an awesome replication of the "tall buildings" then searched the house for a comparable pick-up truck and blue car.
and then she realized "will" had a cape in the picture... she nearly despaired...thankfully she had a quick "Aha!" moment when she remembered her superhero doggie costume from halloween.
oops... a couple of false starts...
flying over tall buildings takes a lot of mental focus for even a superhero
And with renewed confidence...the superhero was off!
pluck n: 1. The trait of showing spirited courage and determination
sophie, my dear, you certainly have pluck and i'm so proud of your spirited personality and for not giving up on your dreams...but now do please try to let go of the dream of turning 6 years old instead of 4 next week. you're growing up fast enough as it is. love from your mommy.
