At Christmas Jordan received a 500 piece puzzle from her BFF Emma. She let it sit for a while unopened as she prepared herself to take on the challenge. The day finally came and she set a goal to accomplish the puzzle. Over the course of 6 weeks she worked on it, a little each day, until it was finally complete. I made a post HERE about the following conversation:
Whenever she is in her game room watching her TV she is also working on a puzzle. Today I asked her about the puzzle noticing that she had really made some progress on it this weekend. She said, "This is a hard one. I keep telling myself not to give up!" First I told her how impressed I was with her "stick-to-it-ness" and then asked her if she wanted a little help. She smiled and said, "No thanks, I really like the feeling I get when I finish something that was hard to do."
Serious proud mama moment. I love this kid and I love the way she thinks.
