My daughter feels everything big. Sad is really sad. Mad is really really mad. Scared is really really really scared. Happy is really really really really happy.
Look at this face. Look at her happy.
This photo makes me well up with tears.
It helps me forget about the big angry, the big mad and the big sad.
It’s a reminder to see the big happy.
Okay, I need to get my crap together, I can hardly see the screen, I am so full of tears. Whew. Get it together, lady.
I wonder where she gets her big emotions from.. hmmmm?
Meet my daughter’s Happy. This is Taryn. This is her very first Maplelea Doll. I chose Taryn because she has a lot in common with our daughter. She is from the Rocky Mountains, she loves to draw, she’s 10 and she struggles with math. And yes, they are wearing matching shirts.
Can we get a collective “Awwwwwwww….”
After opening Taryn and setting up her art set, my daughter was onto FaceTime to show her Nana and her Auntie her new Maplelea Doll, shirt and journal. Taryn comes with a 64 page journal all about her, but also leaves room for my girl to fill in things about her too, which she has already started.
My daughter’s happy is so big that you could feel the happy spread to my Mom and my sister. They were smiling, too. We all were.
It was a reminder that even though my daughter struggles with her big feelings, she is still a little girl who wants to play, imagine and wear a matching shirt with her doll.
Oh damn it.
Here go the tears again.
I better tell you the great news before I turn into a puddle.
