My child is...

Somewhat emotionally sensitive at times
mentally strong
openly emotional, you ALWAYS know exactly how she is feeling!!
serious at times when she is focusing
short-fused - but she is just a toddler!
assertive - we always joke that she will never need assertiveness training classes, she might teach them though
calm at times but not overly so
Very fun-loving
Relatively easy-going
moody (very happy one minute, bummed the next) - also might just be a toddler thing
And definitely show-offy and loves attention!

extroverted? No
mentally strong? Yes, rather
a leader type? Not at all
boisterous? Not at all

My boys are very different animals But some of that I see as birth order stuff and some inherent personality. I will be curious to see what Jo is like.
