As the moon crept up into the sky I suggested climbing this steep mound (and it’s much steeper than it appears). However, I was quickly discouraged from actually following through given the terrain and my shoes which begged to differ with being buried into mud and grass clippings. My girl was already pulling her brother up behind her when I called out “honey, I don’t think we should go up there!”. She turned and surveyed my predicament right down to my red suede shoes covered in grass. “Okay, you stay there then mama” and turned to scale it on her own – pushing her brother up and over a tangle of weeds and pulling him up when he was lost between the tall growth. As she scaled I waited for her to call me to save her from the tangle of weeds in which she was nearly lost. The terrain was very steep and at one point she had to stop Theo from rolling right back down.
And then when she finally stood at the top, she looked down at me like this, my determined little lady and I felt sure that this would not be the first time I’d see her conquer.
”Though she be but little, she is fierce!”
