She's a sweetie

This is such a sweet girl. She wishes she were a boy, she really does. But I think she's a born nurturer. Case in point: Last week I volunteered in her class. They were making ice cream. Let me just mention that it was awesome ice cream!!! Well, I took the boys with me and we ended up staying longer than we had planned. We went to lunch with Haley. I hadn't packed us a lunch, and didn't have any cash on me to pay the lunch lady with; so sweet Haley shared her meal with the boys. It wasn't just that she shared her meal without complaining--but she really just made sure they got to eat before she did. She did this with everything-her sandwich, drink and dessert. Her sweet friend, Alyssa offered her some of her popcorn chicken-about five pieces. What did Haley do? She could have just shoved those little morsels in her mouth, after all she didn't get much of her own sandwich; instead she gave her brothers two pieces each before she enjoyed the last one. SO sweet! I got teary eyed. It was so sweet and loving and thoughtful.
I love my sweet girl. I love moments like this that just make me realize what terrific little people my kids are.

Mikki it is such a treasure to have such a sweet child. She sounds like she has such a big heart and loves her siblings and I don't know what gets better than that.
It is surely a reflection on what a wonderful mother you are. You let her be herself and that is priceless.
Beautiful girl!

Yup! I agree. Hang on to her! She's a real sweetheart!
And btw, girls don't have to be a boy to be good at sports, etc. My oldest daughter was an awesome softball and basketball player. She threw shot put and javelin too. She's now the mother of 4 adorable children.

What a wonderful big sister! I can only hope my boys will be as kind to each other some day. Right now they enjoy acting like they're going to share something and then snatching it away at the last second! little stinkers!
