From the moment SJ could move, she has wanted to be independent. Doing her own thing in her own way and not needing Mama's help. Then I got called to be the sunbeam teacher of her class last year, and another little girl in her class needed lots of attention. It must have touched on a jealous nerve in her somewhere, because for two hours every Sunday she wanted to stay close to me... Sitting on my lap and giving me impromptu hugs and kisses throughout class time. I soaked up every last bit.
