The other day we had a playdate with a new kindergarten friend of yours Hannah. I made mini cupcakes for you to share. Sadie had her friend over too. We had a great little lunch together and a long play. By the time snack time rolled around, there were three cupcakes left. Sadie arrived two seconds too late as the last cupcake was scooped up and she immediately protested. You had your cupcake in you hand and had already taken a bite. Without a single moment of hesitation, you reached across the table and tried to hand Sadie your cupcake (which was exactly what I was wishing I could have done for her at that moment). Of course she was so upset that she refused it anyway but I just thought it was worth marking down. How amazing that you didn't even stop to think about the fact that you would have been the one to be left with no cupcake. Now THAT is what sisters do.

Wow - that's lovely. I also try hard to acknowledge these acts of thoughtfulness in Tristan. Recently we attended the birthday party of one of Phelan's daycare mates. The house was PACKED with two year olds. Tristan played unbelievably well with them. He didn't dominate any of the toys - he shared understandingly when younger kids yanked things out of his hands and disturbed his 'mature' play. I was so proud that he could put himself in that environment and recognize that he was a 'big kid' and behave accordingly. Hannah must have made you so proud!

(in case you're wondering...'Isaac' is actually GRETEL! Your blog doesn't allow non-blogger comments...are you willing to change that setting? (if you do, you'll risk getting comments from me, though!)
