Meet Teegan. She’s 7 and is a hurricane of emotion. Her friends never want to play with her (even though the always want to play with her). No she will not wear that outfit you just bought! Fine she’ll wear the pink ruffled shorts, but only with that black turtleneck you bought her 2 years ago. Earlier tonight she had to take a shower in the guest shower with a different water pressure and she wailed that she couldn’t wash herself for 30 minutes. Bananas? No. Stupid YouTube family videos? Yes - every day. All day. Brushing hair? No. Making up random pop song lyrics? Quit playing games with my heart. Playing basketball? Yes today, but no next week. Yes the following week but no three weeks from now. Always yes to horses.
Teegan is complicated, and requires patience but she is more fun than you can imagine, and funny every day. And she loves fiercely so you wouldn’t trade her for the world.
