Little Mourie is Growing!!

Posted on October 19, 2015 at 9:30 AM

Moreen has been a regular member of our household for a couple of years now. She came to SMK as one of the youngest children and had some challenges adjusting to life in a Boarding School. Thus she was adopted into our ‘family.’ Mourie (as she is affectionately nicknamed) is now a happy, healthy, independent 6 years old in Top Class (same as Kindergarten). While she is timid and quiet at school, she has found her safe place at my house to let loose and be a loud, jovial kiddo.

 

I find myself having some of the same face-offs with Mourie as I had with Antwain. Kids will be kids regardless of their location. Mourie likes only certain cartoons/movies (especially princess and Barbie), but will watch them repeatedly. She wants to dress herself being proud and uncompromising on her wardrobe choices. She finds joy in her accomplishments of simple household chores. And she is steadfastly determined not be left at home, if she knows that I am going somewhere (unless Brian and Joseph are at home with her).

 

She has really brought great joy and activity to our household. She revels in the attention, as much as enjoy providing it for her.
