I know Paige is definitely feeling like this is true in our house. She’s been pretty down lately, saying everything is “about Anson and hockey”. We were worried this would happen, that’s why we started her on piano lessons. So she had something that was her special thing.
Between practice, games, and open skate in Williams..Anson’s at the arena EVERY NIGHT. Paige has the option to go skate too. Sometimes she does, sometimes not. Lately I’ve been feeling a little bad for her though. I don’t want her to think its “all about Anson”. Jerem has been really good at upping the frequency of “daddy dates” and nail painting sessions in her room to make her feel special. I’ve been letting her do more independent things in the kitchen with baking and cooking which she enjoys. I am probably thinking too much about it, I just don’t want her to grow up feeling like she’s in his shadow.
She’s had the option in the past to do volleyball and basketball, but she isn’t competitive. At all. So she does it for a week and wants to quit. Her new thing is wanting to do figure skating. We’re a little late in the game to start that this year, we’ll see about next.
