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.
