"Teagan, why is the sky blue?" "Because if the sky wasn't blue... the clouds wouldn't be white!"
"Guess what T? Tomorrow is Tuesday... where do we go tomorrow and Wednesday and Thursday?"
"Grandma is coming!"
"And then... Monday?"
"School." smile fades
"What's wrong, baby? Aren't you excited about school?"
"No..." fights tears
"How come? You look sad!"
Tears begin to trickle down her cheeks. "I'm going to miss my baby brother! I don't want to leave him! I want to wait until he catches up and comes with me!" Be still my heart...
I look forward to being able to share kid-bits from Zachary someday. Right now, I can't quite find a way to capture the adorable way he pouts; says "I love you" to me or Jeff or Teagan; plays ball with Sassy; is obsessed with drinking lemonade and eating anything fruit; the way he urges you to "come on."
