Is It Possible We're Doing Something Right?
After all of The Princess' teasing of her vaccine shy sibling last week and his incessant ribbing of her for every single reason under the sun, I was beyond touched to see him help her with a project she's taking to school tomorrow. It's a clear bucket intended to aid her class in counting and categorizing. She could fill it with anything she wanted and her classmates have to guess how many there are. Her brother loaned her 15 Hot Wheels. That's sacrifice people. He luuuuuvvvvvsss his cars. And then there was the note:
15 cars in the jar, princess. love, the athlete. p.s. have a good day
omigodomigodomigod - did I instill this in him? I pray so. And then some.
Yes, I know that he will hide the bucket from her before breakfast is over and she will punch him in the arm and scream bloody murder. But for this moment, just for now, I am oh so proud.
