The many forms of love

There is a big sister in my house that loves her little sister. They like to spend their afternoons smiling and looking at toys together.

Bonnie shows her love for Charlotte in many gentle ways. In the morning Bonnie loves to come into our room,hop on the bed, and talk to Charlotte. Sometimes after Charlotte has woken up from her nap Bonnie goes in and reads her a book.

There is a big brother that loves his sister fiercly. I adore how much he loves her, but he's like a bear and doesn't know his own dangerous strength.

When Chas is around I keep a close eye on him. So does Charlotte, but she watches him because she loves him as much as he loves her. He makes her smile all the time.

So in the end on the days I'm just so frustrated with the kids, I just have to remember the little things. Because the day to day drama that has now taken over my life isn't nearly as great as the little things. Sorry for the sappy post but right now in the quiet evening that is how I feel.

I love the pictures. You have great kids who just challenge you at times, but they are so sweet!

Sometimes, (especially when you have little children) the little things in life are the best. But, you're talking about LOVE that is a big thing. Your children, do love each other. But, of course, there are times when life is just plain noisy and challenging. Grab the sweet times and remember them.

Today I was so grumpy and I really couldn't get over it until I decided that I needed to stop stressing over all that I needed to do and just enjoy some story reading time with Orson, and seeing Arthur being nice to Cedric. Cedric thinks Arthur is the coolest thing ever. Kids are challenging at times but they really are the best!
