Little things I love about my girls...

You won't watch a Disney movie without having someone right by your side to protect you from the scary parts, especially from the queen.

The great friends you both have made at school.

A fun playdate full of afterschool snacks, hanging out in your bedroom & kareoke
You make your own beds- so neat & tidy. Of course you're good at making messes too, but you try to earn the "Lucky Plate" each day by cleaning up after yourself.

Sage hung her posters she collected from the Auto show all over her room. I let her enjoy them for a few days before "cleaning up", at least she used blue tape :).

You keep us laughing with your funny sense of humor!
You always check what I'm wearing so you can dress like me or match. I'm sure this won't last, but it's so cute now :)

That you are best friends most of the time and always have a playmate.

You like learning and reading the "hard" books from school, and doing puzzles.

You are your brothers biggest fans and think they're the coolest!

(last season)

You tell us we took too long to come and get you in China. "Hurry mom, Hurry!"

When getting up in the middle of the night to use the restroom, you come in to give me another hug before going back to bed.

Your empathy for others. You always pray for those you care about- a few days ago you prayed for Uncle Don and to help Aunt Peggy and their family so they're not too sad.

That I often find you in Sophie's bed in the morning (top bunk), when your covers fall off.

And your love for animals, you make sure Shadow (our cat) has food and water everyday! Whenever I can't find Shadow, I find her snuggled on your bed.

I Love My Girls!

ks for pointing out the things you love. It's such a good example for me. I like that "Lucky Plate" idea! Do you have any other cute traditions that teach kids to clean up?
