My luck is holding...











So far so good!! The chat yesterday seems to have worked.. I wouldn't say she was exactly happy with me but she is behaving herself and seems at least to accept that this is the reality. We have been able to shop, eat and walk without much in the way of incident! YAY!  She is adorable when happy... really sweet and can I say -  that this is without a doubt the class valedictorian?? She is very very smart!! No question.. she can sing Happy Birthday in English and count to 100, say her ABCs etc. She reads many characters.. and recognizes things beyond her years. We were walking on Shamian Island and she saw a yellow taxi and she began to hail the cab like a pro!! She is extremely westernized in her behavior and actions!!  I could have howled with laughter the way she refused to use a squatty - but today at the cow and bridge *YUMMO* she used it like she knew what she was doing when there was no choice... she is very funny!!  She is so very independent - it will be interesting when we get home whether she rubs off on EFP & EBB or if they rub off on her.. she doesn't want anyone to do for her anything she feels she can do herself, which is probably how she has been taught.  I will take the peace and happiness while I can get it. This is so much BETTER!!!!

It was so comforting to hear that things have smoothed out a bit. In past posts I have "heard" the desperation in your literary voice, and I've just ached for you. I remember days when it was so bad that i thought "What in the heck have I done?!?" And I held it all in for fear of judgment from others. Please know that I am judgment free, and completely sympathetic to your plight!!! Saying prayers for you!!!
