Bossy Little Lady
The kids have been trying the blo-art set I found them at a boot fair, so I came home from work to be presented with lots of artwork, which Little Lady had promptly decorated her bunkbed with, along with some curious instructions for her brothers.
I have been having a difficult time with Little Lady who seems to veer between utter sweetness and moments verging on rudeness which I strugge to deal with. She can't be turning into a teenager already could she? In any case, I am dealing with things one at a time and trying to remind her what is acceptable behaviour and what is not. I am also trying to make sure I don't get drawn into abattle of wills with an eight year old! Insh'Allah I make dua that Allah (SWT) helps me bring her up with the correct tarbiyyah (upbringing). It is also a reminder for me to look at myself and review my own ways of dealing with things and have a think about whether anything I am doing is setting a bad example for her.
