⚠ ⚠ EMOTIONAL BUT POSITIVE POST ⚠ ⚠
so this is my niece. She is 4, super smart, humble, caring, funny, a true princess, ornery, beautiful and sweet. I make visits as often as I can, and when I'm there she is my main focus. I love all family of course but my baby girl has my 💯 attention when I am there.
Anyways. Now that she's older and talking, she said something to me that made me cry happy tears. We were laying on the floor before doing our makeup. Jesse had to come put me on the floor. She said "you can't walk. But that's ok." I said "this is true." she said "you are so little but you are older than me. You have a big butt. 😂" I giggled and said "yep. I sure do got a big old booty." we both laughed. Then she said "your back hurts but that's ok you take your medicine so you can keep playing with me. I don't like when your back hurts aunt Vanna. It makes me sad. I give you your medicine if you need it." I said "that is so sweet and thank you for taking such good care of me. I just took my meds tho, do you think I look in pain" she said "kind of but now you laying on floor so it's ok now." She is FOUR years old and has been raised to love everyone, and to love the differences of others. She doesn't have one single ounce of hate in her. Hate is taught it is learned thru OUR ACTIONS AS ADULTS. Kids are born innocent and pure. Life is so simple to them, they just love life and live it. I encourage her to ask me questions, I am 💯 with her on what my medicine does. I refuse to tell her it's "candy" bc what if she wants candy one day? I am honest with her completely, I put it into simple terms for her but I think it's important to tell her the truth.
She doesn't look at me as different, she sees her aunt boo boo who loves her and comes to visit as often as I can. When I need a Pepsi, she knows and gets it for me. If I'm crying or look like I'm in pain, she tries to give me medicine (it's not in her reach I am very careful about it.) when I say I have to lay down, she gets sad for. 322 of a second and then says "ok I bring it to you"
If a four year old can love like this, why can't grown ass adults. 🤔.
