This makes my heart sing.
As a mom, I love to see the big sister wanting to do things with the little sister. And that little sister will sit patiently while that big sister does anything around her. She already adores her.
As an English teacher, I love that my daughter wants to read books! Sometimes when Ellie is being too quiet in another room, it means she’s coloring on the shelves again or taking all the nail polish out of the linen closet. But more and more often, it’s because she’s found a book and is sitting down to “read” it. This brings me such joy.
