I predict that this bright kid will innovate and create BIG things in the very near future. At our last photo shoot we spent way more time playing games, laughing, and chatting than taking photos. She is a wildly impressive reader, a strong big sister, and a totally badass gamer who loves competition and swift critical thinking while simultaneously being patient and kind.
It is hard for me to think about having kids until I have certain things just right. (I'm sure my sweet Jewish Mother just rolled her eyes and sighed a long, heavy sigh.) That said- I'll admit that this smarty makes me SO excited at the thought of someday teaching and growing with someone who's creative thinking blows my freakin' mind.
With kids on the brain, I want to invite you to checkout an amazing therapeutic child abuse prevention/intervention program I had the pleasure of working with years ago, The Child Development Resource Center of the Central Coast. They are an amazing nonprofit and community program providing tools, therapy, and support to strengthen families and help them feel/be safe. You can donate towards therapy sessions for kids and parents in scary situations, volunteer/play/make art with the kiddos, and send over art supplies, books, etc...
