Little Miss Independent is what we used to call Mari. She had a very big independent personality. She preferred to play by herself, watch movies by herself, just about anything by herself.
I could sit there, sometimes, and just watch her playing on the floor with whatever it was she was playing with and be utterly content. That is until something didn’t go the way she liked or wanted and then we heard about it. She get all upset, start to scream, and then it usually resulted in her messing everything up the way she had it. I’d just shake my head because I couldn’t go down and help her to ask what was wrong as she couldn’t have understood what I was trying to communicate and she wouldn’t have been able to communicate back to me. Her autism simply didn’t allow it. Yet, at the same time, this is why she was so independent. She had one of the great personalities and I will forever be touched by a little girl who’s no longer here with us.
I love you Baby Girl and Mommy misses you very much.
