There are many different gifts which one can give. Some gifts can be very expensive but be meaningful while certain items which do not have a large price tag on can mean the world to you. There are also gifts which can’t even be measured by the dollar.
The gift of time is something which is extra special and something which cannot be bought with money. It is something which I really treasure. Spending time with my loved ones and them taking time out to be with me is something that has a lot of meaning to me. Time is something which is really precious. You live for the moment and once it is gone it cannot be retrieved.
Those moments which just occurred will be etched in our memory forever. The time that we spent together on a family vacation. The time sitting together on a bench hand in hand, a walk in the park or just sharing a meal together. Being in the same space as the person/people that you love does make it extra special especially if these moments are not really easy to come by.
What extra special gift have you received this year?
Being 2.5yrs old is certainly a nice age to be at. It’s an age where you gain your independence and the world and am not afraid to meet up to challenges that you may face. Everyday is a fun learning experience and you get to play the whole day. You are older now but still able to be regarded as a baby.
Help is readily rendered to you whenever you need help dressing up, being fed or face any obstacles. Little things in life either fascinate or annoy you. You do not hide your emotions but display them clearly on your face. You can be bubbly and happy one moment and change into a screaming terror the next when you feel that the world is caving onto you as you didn’t get the last sweet from the box. Lucky the trying moments with Tiger girl do not last that long and she is able to compose herself after the outburst and back to her happy and sweet self.
Tiger girl is at the stage where she is very keen to do everything her own self and questions your reasoning/explanations. It is good that she is learning how to analyze the different situations which she is in and also weigh in on the options that are presented to her.
I guess that it is a rite of passage that all toddlers go through. I once was like how Tiger girl is behaving at the moment. I don’t really have any recollection of how it was being 2.5 years old. All that I have with me are the photographs which my mom took of me and my sister when we were on vacations back then.
Tiger girl and me
I would certainly been friends with myself back then. I think it would have been great fun to have an interactive living doll to accompany me.
