Kembry a Virgo?

Practicality and conscientious attention to detail are two of your Virgo child's foremost traits, even from an early age. You might find her organizing her toys or saving her allowance to buy some coveted item while other children spend their money on immediate gratification.

Not so.  If lip gloss is in the equation, she'll blow it all.  Remember Rebecca Bloomwood from "Confessions of a Shopaholic"?  I seriously imagined Kembry the entire time.  Good thing Brett has two jobs.

Your little Virgo isn't likely to be frivolous. Rather, she measures the pros and cons of a situation and goes with what makes the most sense. Virgo children have high standards and are naturally cautious, so they can seem picky or reserved, but this is simply because they prefer to stand back and assess a situation rather than throwing themselves into it.

Explain this to the young life guards at the pool.  Kembry runs and jumps into the pool.  Not the kiddie pool.  The deep pool.  We get the dirtiest crusty's from those life guards sometimes...especially since Kembry looks more like a fresh 2 year old than a seasoned 3 year old.

Your Virgo child is a natural helper. She appreciates order and genuinely wants to pitch in and be of service to the family and, later, to the world -- a trait that should be commended and developed.

This is about the only part of her sign that rings even slightly true to me.  She does love to help, however her help is often a hindrance.  Maybe this will change when she's older, but for now I just don't like letting her lose with a can of Lysol and a rag.

As the parent of a Virgo, you'll need to temper your child's expectation of perfection with the message that sometimes, good enough is just that -- good enough. Build up her confidence as much as you can, for your child is likely to be self-effacing and overly humble.

And I quote, "I'm so pretty.  I'm so beautiful.  I'm the beautiful, pretty princess."  Or, as Brett just said, "More like vain and self-centered!"  The girl has had more mirror time in her short 3 years of life than I had in my teenage years.

Help your little Virgo relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of life by getting outside into nature -- going swimming or for a long, meandering walk. Balanced meals, scheduled naps, and regular downtime will all be important for your Virgo child, who may tend to be rather fretful and anxious. Anything that promotes relaxation will help your child stay calm and centered.

One thing we need to make sure of with Kembry: feed her, feed her a lot, and feed her often.  I don't know if this has anything to do with schedules and what-not, but the girl tends to have a nasty low-blood sugar effect.  Our only problem now is keeping her out of nature, and out of dirt.  She's the little girl who climbs trees higher than the boys, in her Princess Cinderella dress.

Kembry a Virgo?  I think her sign was chronologically mixed up with her due date.  Remember on Seinfeld when George goes to the natural healer, recommended by Kramer?  And the healer asks George, "In what month were you born?"  George replies, "March."  Then the healer says, "You should have been born in September.  Your parents would have been well advised to wait."  That's us!
