My children, understandably enough, cannot wait until it is their turn. Hey, they get different toys and books and games, cartoons (we don't have "live" TV), chips and cookies, and best of all...the undivided attention of an adoring grandmother. What child wouldn't eat that up?!? I had to get over myself a long time ago, and not take it personally that my children can't wait to leave here and have a turn with Laoli - I'm just so thankful that they have this wonderful "Laoli" in their life.
We waited for Lily Kay to have a turn at a "Laoli Day" until we knew she was ready. And boy was she!
We could tell she finally understood the deal - what she was missing out on - last week when Daniel got to have his turn. Ever since then she has been saying, multiple times a day - "Zibing turn, Laoli turn".
Finally, finally...it was Zibing's turn on Tuesday. Before we even ate breakfast, she looked like this: jewelry, check...jacket, check. Ready to go spend time with Laoli!
She even put this beautiful headband on, all by herself...to look her best for Laoli.
She has already started asking again, multiple times a day, for another turn with Laoli. "Zibing turn...Laoli turn..."
When mom stopped by for a quick visit last night, Zibing slipped on some sunglasses, Laoli's purse and was ready to leave with Laoli. "Zibing turn..."
Thankfully, we see my mom on an almost daily basis, so Zibing has plenty of opportunities to see Laoli, but as for "Zibing turn...", she doesn't yet understand that 4 children, rotating on a weekly basis = she doesn't get another turn for 4 more weeks!
