Today was the little pumpkin's dental visit. She did great. No cavities and she got an A+ during the plaque check...you know where they stain their teeth with the magenta dye and check. Of course she thought her purple teeth & lips were HILARIOUS and she couldn't stop giggling.
Getting to pick out a prize...or two...or three for doing so well. Showing off her sparkly clean "princess" teeth and A+ report card. But what I want to remember from today - and the reason I wrote this post in the first place - is this: Without blinking twice, when she was told she could pick out prizes to take home, she immediately asked if she could pick some out for her brother. She picked three for herself...a sparkly "water glitter" bracelet (pink, of course), a jewel ring, and some stickers. And she picked three for him...a dinosaur, a yellow matchbox car, and a foam airplane.Of course, she talked the girl into giving her "just one more...a rubber ducky...for BOTH me and my brother" :) On days when I feel like all I'm doing is yelling "No, give that back to your brother - he was playing with it first." or "That belongs to your sister, don't take it from her room without asking." or "Who in the world made this mess?"...this is what I want to remember: her kindness...their love for each other...that they really are each other's favorite playmate.
I pray they will always stick up for each other, no matter what.
Grace & Hudson,
Mama loves you two more than words can say.
