We went to a new park today and Audrey went wild. Once she unbuckled herself in the car and saw the door open, she busted out like a thoroughbred and never looked back.
She did a lot of this:
And a crazy lot of this:
By the time I told her it was time to leave, she looked like this:
45 minutes in the January sun made her turn 3 shades darker and secrete half her body fluid through her head. Does she mind that she has sopping wet dreads covering her face? I don't think so. Does it bother her that marble-sized beads of sweat are stinging her eyes? Nope. Is she self-conscious that all the other boys and girls are completely dry? Nuh-uh.
It's confirmed. God has uniquely gifted our Auj with boundless energy and boundless sweat. She is fearfully and wonderfully made to be just like her father.
Lest you think this is a recent phenomenon, here is a flashback to Auj at 13 months.
I guess reading books inside our air-conditioned home was enough to cause a lot of perspiration. Oh Auj, no one sweats like you do. Love you!
