“We’re all a little weird. And life is weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.” – Dr. Seuss
Does she display habits that are out of the ordinary?
My daughter is a classic example:
1. She likes to rub and touch my elbows while breastfeeding. It helps to put her to sleep. She kisses my elbows first when greeting me, before kissing my cheeks.
2. She doesn’t like stamps on her hands, so the teacher gives her cut out stars instead for great job in school work.
3. She likes to put shoes on her left foot first, before the right foot.
4. She says “No Kiss”, then proceeds to kiss all her stuffed toys and miniatures.
5. When she makes number two, she finds a corner, squats down and does her business. And no one should talk to her while she’s busy. (Good luck with our toilet training!)
No matter what her quirks are, I don’t think it makes Sofie any less different. I know I have mine too. I guess knowing these little things makes her funny and endearing all the more. And it makes her personality so unique and much more colorful.
So here’s to discovering more weird and quirky sides to my daughter. This means I can spend more time bonding and discovering these together with her.
