A Conversation Among Little Ones

So this is what it sounds like at our house these days....

Carter: "AAHHHHHHHH!!"  (loud sound, not aimed at anyone in particular, but basically everyone who has the ability to hear... not out of anger or fit, but just out of the love of hearing oneself make very loud noises)

Rylee:  sniffles and a huge pouty lip and teary eyes, verging on an all-out downpour of tears (not a fan of loud noises, especially if she isn't the one making the loud noise)

Carter:  "Sa-wee" (sorry... said with the least amount of meaning possible)

Rylee:  "Fank you!"  (thank you... said with inflection of such gratefulness as she wipes away her tears)

Carter: "Ma... Ma... sa-wee!"  (proclaiming his manners... being sure mom heard that he told Rylee he was sorry)

Carter: "AAAHHHHHHHHH!"

Rylee:  sniffles and a huge pouty lip and teary eyes, verging on an all-out downpour of tears

Carter: "Sa-wee"

Rylee: "Fank you!"

Carter: "Ma... Ma... sa-wee!"


And so it goes...

Oh, how all parents and grandparents can relate! The delicate balance between love and hate among siblings. The trick is to keep moving the fulcrum toward the love end! I sure LOVE your photos!

Love, Mom
