Lessons

I have to tell a sweet little story that happened today. Isabella was playing with Amelia and didn't realize that I was watching them (at first I was watching with a little smile because lately Amelia has just been belly laughing at Isabella and its so cute) well, then Isabella for some reason hit Amelia -- not hard enough to make Amelia cry (which we all know wouldn't take much) but still I could tell it was a mean hit, not a tap on the head. I had to give Isabella a time out and then afterwards I sat her on my lap and decided to try and talk to her about being a big sister. You see, lately I have noticed alot of siblings (not in my family, in case anyone is worried :) that really don't like each other. Now I realize they will fight, they might not always get along or have the same friends, but by golly, I am going to do my best to have my girls love each other! So anyway, I sat her down and told her (yes realizing she's only - well almost 3) that she wasn't allowed to hit anyone, etc. but that she needs to be sweet to her baby sister. That God gave her her baby sister and He wants her to be a good big sister, etc. Then a few minutes later, I went back into the kitchen to make lunch and I heard her talking to Amelia and she said "Mia, God gave you to me." (In her own little sweet 2 1/2 year old voice) It was so sweet.
