Regardless, my girl is laid back and easy going. Fun time and things that aren't part of the routine are fair game. Not everything has to be just so... but everyday scheduled things. Yes.
So I think violin lessons work for her because she has to do it just so... it fits that passion and structure she has inside of her.
She loves that she has to place her feet just this way and that she must play the bow between the two strips of tape, I mean who pays attention to that detail and wants to do it? It's awesome.
But she's also getting a bit carried away, like wanting to wash her hands all the time and wanting to say grace, before we've sat down and are still getting last minute things ready for dinner, but she's ready. She knows it must be done and in her mind it's now.
She's also very sure of herself when she plays doctor or vet. She will check our ears... Daddy was very sick he had a pig in one ear and a dog in the other. Pigs in the ear seems to be easy to catch as we seem to be sick with it all the time! She'll give us a shot and it has to be done just so, and you can't interrupt her process. She knows just what to do.
Even last night, I was sick with a pig in both ears, but caught for the first time an elephant in my nose. Wow! I didn't know I was that sick. But "Doctor Ashton" as she calls herself gave me plenty of shots and medicine to get better.
She also takes care of a stuffed Dalmatian toy, that gets sick a lot. I don't know if he catches the pig in the ear that's going around, but she luckily only administers to him and not any of our family pets.
It's always a fun time with our budding doctor, vet, and violinist!
