Now, to be fair, I don’t KNOW all of your daughters and so I can’t really compare, but I feel that I absolutely must brag about how I have the best girl ever.
All I know is that Emma fell outside and scraped both of her knees. Matt took her inside to sit and wait for a bandaid. With an armload of groceries, I walked in the front door to find Lucy reading “Cranberry Thanksgiving” to Emma to keep her happy while she waited.
I confirmed with Matt that he did not instigate that arrangement. Lucy was just being a wonderful big sister on her own initiative.
I am so in love with Lucy. I don’t know why we were blessed to have her in our family. I’m pretty sure that her wonderfulness is 90% personality and personal nature, 10% parenting… if that.
I have to figure out a way to harness that natural sweetness and bottle it up to feed to my other children in concentrated doses.
Who would have thought that my once sassy and melodramatic girl would be such a delight.
No you can’t have her, she’s mine!!
