Unsolved Mystery

If you don't recognize this mug's Daughter #2...

And from the day she entered this world.... I've had a hard time understanding her, she's artistic, musical, hilarious, level headed, forgetful and cheap. She's usually is the only one not to get you a present for your birthday and then will lavish you one day when you're out shopping.

And as the years have went by her Dad and I have watched her blossom into this incredible person. Who is a teacher by nature and any kid from 4 to 14 falls in love with her.

She loves to be moving instead of sitting.

One of the things I love about her is that she can always get the last word in with her Daddy... which is an absolute feat for Daughter #1 and I.

She's always had family and friends who love to be with her.

And trying to get her to focus on school over the years was a challenge to say the least, because she always had this amazing imagination and school seemed boring to her.

Here she is with Halle her cousin and boy can those two cause some trouble.

And she loves animals....

And she does do gang signs, but we've let that go... because she doesn't know what she's doing.

So the mystery for me is that I for the life of me can't understand why this summer she has a job tutoring two young boys in their reading and writing. She disliked school and the creativity she wanted to have... but she's amazing with these hilarious young boys who have a hard time focusing on reading and comprehension.

And so her focused sister and I sit and listen to her teaching methods which involved taking breaks that involve hand slapping games and stare down competitions with her pupils.

I then realize that maybe she's the best teacher for them seeing that she knows what it's like not wanting to learn, but having to learn and then on top of it... making it really fun.

So Proud,
Java Mama
