On A Lighter Note

Emilly is our youngest at two. The older she gets the funnier she gets. A year ago she was the most serious person you would have ever met. Today...well, it is difficult to get her to be serious even for a moment.

Last night as I was getting the girls ready for bed, I told Emilly to straighten up her room. She immediately burst into tears. "I don't want to!" she exclaimed. I simply explained to her that wanting to was not required. She needed to get it done or she would have a consequence. Let's just say that she ended up with a consequence. When she had finished her consequence she came back to her room to clean, and she looked up at me with those huge gray eyes. And then spoke as evenly as if she had rehearsed it and said, "I'm still not happy."

I about fell over trying not to laugh. She is just so funny. Sometimes I am sure she knows it and other times I don't think she has a clue. Life is going to be filled with lots of funny moments with this child around.

What a precious child!!! I can just picture her telling you she was still not happy. She makes me smile just looking at her "sometimes so serious" and "sometimes so funny" face. I hope I will be able to watch her grow and develop her personality. I am looking forward to that. She and Hazel are two very special children.
