Welcome to Mariah's Room. Mariah
loves to drag people into her room but watch your step for you will find toys
scattered from a full day of play. Mariah is my youngest daughter; she is four
years old. Mariah has a vivid imagination; she is my first child to have and imaginary
friend who has an imaginary mother who owns an imaginary house. I don't worry
too much though because when mom plays along she soon tires of the game and announces
with her hands on her hips "Mommy, you hafta unnerstand that my friend is NOT
real, OK Mommy? It is just pretending in my brain". I laugh so hard and that only
sets her off more She stomps away shaking her head in disgust with a "Jesh!" under
her breath. She gets sad when her sisters leave her to go to school. One day I
made the mistake of buying her a backpack or as she calls it 'ackpack'. She put
on her shoes and her ackpack early every morning for a week pleading "Can I go
to school now Mommy?" and when I would explain that she just wasn't old enough
she would say "But Mommy I got my shoes on and I got an ackpack now I can go to
school". Mariah is a loving child but she can also be your typical 4 year old
she can repeat the word PLEASE when pleading for something to the point it sounds
like nails on a chalk board. And temper, Wow this little angel can have a temper
but it is a fleeting temper that never lasts long. There is a song "They call
the wind Mariah" in our house they call Mariah windy :0) She is my baby, my little
character, she makes my days brighter. Mommy Loves you Mariah!
Well I suppose an update is
in order :) Mariah is now 6 years old and is having a wonderful time in kindergarten!
She is my youngest and with no little ones at home I am able to volunteer at school.
It is a riot to watch 22, 5 and 6 year olds finger paint LOL I cherish my baby
for I believe she is truly my last.
