there's more to this story, but that's for another day {maxine turns 7}

Happy Birthday ๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ‰ to my little miss Max!!! Things about Maxine you should know...She loves #emoji ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿผ, shopkins, making arts ๐ŸŽญ and crafts ๐ŸŽจ, #shopping ๐Ÿ›, #dance ๐Ÿ‘ฏ, and riding bikes ๐Ÿšฒ. Her nickname is HP. It stands for Hell ๐Ÿ‘น๐Ÿ‘ธ๐ŸผPrincess. She doesn't know that's what it stands for, but she will flip on a dime and you won't even know what hit you ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘น. One time when she was 2 ✌๐Ÿป️, she and Brennan took two bags of pb and regular #chocolate ๐Ÿซ chips out on the tramp. It was hot. They melted. I used to think Brennan was the one causing the trouble bc he's older, but we now know the common denominator for events such as this is always Max ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ. It's just her gift ๐ŸŽ to always be thinking and creating and planning. It may look like mischief now, but I know it's going to take her big places all through life ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’•. She's learning to play piano ๐ŸŽน, and her teacher tells me she's in the lead for practicing minutes. Every day she sets a timer ⏲ on #Alexa , and we go down to the keyboard in the basement to take turns practicing together ๐ŸŽถ. She's a perfectionist, and I #love watching her wrestle and learn through it #thestruggleisreal ๐Ÿ˜ณ. When she gets hungry, watch out. She'll eat hot ๐Ÿ”ฅ lunch, but asks for home ๐Ÿก lunch ๐Ÿด about once a month, and this all came about because Brennan was going through the hot lunch line ๐ŸŒฎ๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿ— #adventuresinhomelunch every day without asking, and eating his home lunch too, which went unnoticed for about three months until max ratted him out and it alllllllll made sense ๐Ÿ˜‚. There's more to this story, but that's for another day ๐Ÿ™ˆ. So now I've just succumbed, and basically they know they've won and are in charge #thestruggleisreal ✌๐Ÿป️. At bedtime she asks me to scratch her back and tickle her arms and face. She loves to read chapter books ๐Ÿ“š "quiet and in her head," and her teachers tell me that if they could just have a room full of Maxine's, the world ๐ŸŒŽ would be a perfect place. I love you #littleMissMax ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜!!!
