Miles can't talk yet, but if he could, I'm pretty sure what he'd say.

Clearly, something has alarmed the child. And whatever it was, he passed it along to Grace.

And that's why he looks so smug.

Things that make a Daddy happy

Today we took Grace to the doctor for her well child check. At the end she got two shots and they did not go particularly well. It turns out she doesn't like needles. Still. Well, because she got two shots she was offered 2 stickers. She picked one and then started bargaining with the nurse that she needed two more for her brother. Finally she got a care bear for herself and 2 spiderman stickers for her brother. I thought it was really cute that she was thinking of him.

Then, she was over at a friend's house this afternoon when Sam came home from school. He was happily showing off his many valentines from his friends and then confided that he had "sneakedd a cupcake into Grace's mailbox". He got a cupcake from a friend, and decided to give his best valentine loot to his sister as a surprise.

So, next time I hear dialog like this:
Sam: "I don't want to argue with you."
Grace: "Yes!"
Sam: "No!"
etc..., I will remember that they really do love each other. A lot.
