Lately, I haven't felt like blogging as much as I normally do.
I guess I've been indulging in the beautiful, secret world that only my kids and I know.
Maybe you and your children also hold the precious key to this happy place.
If you do, I hope that you go there as often as possible.
Today in our heavenly little world, Scarlett served us lunch. She put the whole thing together: carrots and dip, celery and peanut butter, oranges, grapes, yogurt, and water. She set the table and poured our drinks with such care.
She made me SO. PROUD.
I have said recently, that I look at Scarlett and I see a girl who will make a great CEO someday...or President of the United States. She is a natural born leader with an amazing gift of compassion for others. She is a true gem.
My comment came echoing back to me, as Scarlett looked back at me today and said with her quiet and beautiful actions: But you know I'll be a Mother someday, Mommy. And that is the work that I love to do...just like you.
This is what Scarlett looked like yesterday right before we went to Kindergarten registration. Do you think she's excited?
