The Other Side of the Story

After yesterday’s post, I feel that I want to tell you all something a bit more positive about my daughter. And there is definitely what to tell. Over Passover (and before), Ricki was a good deal of help. When I was cleaning the kitchen for Passover, she told me that she wanted to help. So I let her clean the lower shelves, and she did a VERY good job of it! After she finished, I only needed to check them; they were clean as new.
Also, the lack of leavened goods over Passover means that LOTS of potatoes get consumed… and that means peel, peel, peel….
And Ricki peeled twenty potatoes at a time for me, more than once. And again, she did an excellent job of it!
But what impressed me most was that I noticed a more mature level of conversation on her part over the holiday. She asked quests pertinent, caring questions, such as “Did you sleep well?” She seemed a bit less self-centered, and expressed herself more clearly.
I think that she is maturing (at least SOMETIMES)!
