for some reason i have always had this deep desire for my girls to LOVE something. to love a certain toy. to be obsessed with a certain collection of things. i'm not real sure why that's important to me, but it is. i want them to have something that they are passionate about and i feel like it's my job as their parent to help them find things that they love to do. i'm pretty sure that may make me weird, but i dunno. we tried to get them into "littlest pet shop". we bought tons of stuff from a friend whose daughter had outgrown it. they like playing with it. but it's not something they love. we bought them legos. they like playing with them. but they don've love them. and their interest seems to change so frequently (they get that from me, sadly) that it's hard to keep up with their favorites.
at this moment in time, it's safe to say that mykah is obsessed with barbies. she sleeps with them, bathes with them, and plays with them several times a day.
i haven't quite figured karsyn out. they do both like to play with their new dolls that they got for Christmas. they're the target brand american girl. definitely cheaper, but we couldn't see spending $100 on a doll that may or make not keep it's hair or arms and legs for any certain amount of time. mykah loves to fix hair. i try to limit her to her dolls because she hasn't quite got the hairdressers touch when it comes to human heads. you may leave with bruises.
oh, and karsyn is mildly obsessed with soccer. playing it. not soccer balls. not all things soccer. but when it comes soccer season, she's super excited.
so, for now, that's all we got. and i think it may be normal for my children not to have yet decided that they'll be doctors one day for sure, i'm comfortable with the fact that that's life. life is about learning. it's about living. it's about finding new things you love and exploring new hobbies. and i want to nurture that for my kids. i want to help them find their passions in life and run with them.
maybe i should do the same for myself.
