Mona is my middle child. She is a peace maker and is extremely easy going. She is kind and sweet. She is also easily persuaded and gets taken advantage of....A LOT. I really have to watch her interaction with siblings and friends because she gets pushed around. She is one of the sweetest children I have ever met.
Mona rarely expresses her own opinions. Her older sister wants to be a vet when she grows up. So did Mona. Her older sister's favorite color is green. So is Mona's. When we got the bunny (which was Mona's bunny), her older sister said, "what do you think, I think we should name him 'Spots'!" "Oh yes, that's a great idea..." said, Mona, although she really wanted to name him "Snowflake". She brings home the book order from school. She is counting out her allowance. She picks something out of the flyer. Her older sister walks by and says, "why don't WE get this?" which is not what she originally picked out. But she buys it anyways. Her older sister is never mean or malicious. She is the first born. And Mona is never disgruntled either. But sometimes I worry. What if when she is bigger, some kids may ask her everyday, "Buy me a chocolate bar with your money" or worse. I have seen it too often. The nicest kid gets taken advantage of.
"Mona, I think you would make a fantastic play school teacher... You are so kind and good at playing with little kids. I can't wait to see you become a wonderful Play school teacher". She wrapped her little arms around my neck. "That will be so much fun, Mommy. I love little kids".
