This afternoon Princess and I sat down to eat a chocolate cookie. Of course I finished mine before she was even half way through her cookie. At my last bite she looked at me and said, "Want more, Mommy." I explained that there were no more. She said, "I break in half," and with that she broke a bite off of her cookie and handed it to me. I tried to explain that a bite of it was not half of the cookie - just kidding!!!
Then she said, "When Little Guy (only his real name) wakes up from nap, him eat cookie." So again I told her there were no more cookies. She said she would give him half of her cookie. She continued to eat, then looked up at me with her big blue eyes and said, "I wuv Little Guy." Then she saved a couple of crumbs for him - "little bites," she said.
My prayer is that even at the age of 16 she will love her little brother just as she does now.
