Tallula recently wrangled with a virus.
A nasty, throw-up-in-the-middle-of-the-night kind of virus.
Shouting her most recently mastered sentences: “Put that back!”, “Go ‘way!” and “Don’t want to!”
But there are a few remnants of that softer side. Moments when she would rather snuggle up to me than run off and tackle her sister. Moments that she is content to lay next to her brother instead of grabbing his toy and promptly running off.
Enjoying these snippets of a more mellow girl for now. But always aware that a firestorm might be just around the bend.
And embracing them both.
