Kid-Bits

"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?"

"Miss Lisa's!"

"And Friday?"

"Grandma is coming!"

"And Saturday?"

"Dance class!"

"Sunday?"

"Church!"

"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."

Just when you think sibling rivalry is alive and well, big sister puts on her grown up girl panties and shows how much love is blooming in her heart for her little brother. It took my brother and me until college.

Your little ones are precious and you have a keen sensitivity to all their wonders. Kinda makes me miss when my two were little.

Enjoy this special time. It goes quick!

These Teagan Tidbits are quickly becoming my favorite posts! I see a book in your future...complete with Teagan's illustrations. I'd buy it!

I love the tidbits! So cute!

I think it's great that Teagan and Zachary are so close.

If Alix was my sister, I would have pulled her hair.

If Alix was your sister, you would have spit gum in her hair on purpose just so she'd end up with a bad haircut.

Teagan's pay-off line is wonderful, but I have to say what impresses me most is how well she knows her calendar! I have to write all that stuff down. =)

This is so precious. I love it.

And WOW-The Be Bright Pink button looks fantastic on your site!! I'll say some prayers for the family you mentioned.
