I would tell you I don't have expectations around Ava's play but then we are at the park and I want to tell her to "go play with kids" but I stop myself and let her do this for an hour. No joking she has batted the same fountain for an hour, well she batted the bigger one once but still. I also would not like her to play with "evil" barbies and all things pink. But it's who she is I need to stop putting my "needs" on her. Just let go. How do you overcome your expectations?
