I hadn’t consciously done this, but I’m so glad that Caroline, with her amazing ability to learn, has understood that her parents love each other. Growing up, my parents were always affectionate in front of us. They would hug and kiss and dance. I want my daughter to grow up in a home seeing a loving, healthy relationship modeled. So, I was thrilled to see her pick up the “mommy” and “daddy” from her dollhouse and have them kiss each other and then dance with each other. Then they found the baby and kissed her, too.
Now, that’s a joy!
