Siblings fight sometimes-at least mine do. I figured it is to be expected, but I still try to train them to at least fight fair and without using mean, hurtful words. Often times, I find myself wondering if they ever hear me. And then, I see it. A moment happens between these children of mine, and I know-they are listening and learning. When I catch these moments, this mamma's heart is filled with joy, and I consider it a simple pleasure to capture and tuck away in my memory.
Tonight, my younger daughter had a hand chimes performance. After it was over, she went to sit down while the next group performed. During the changing of performers, my oldest went over ON HER OWN and gave her little sister a kiss on the head and told her she did a good job. Now I can't say that my younger daughter was totally receptive to the kiss on the head-she kind of waved her arms a little in a "OK, OK that's enough" motion. But, hey, I gotta look at the positive side right? The Other Nut got it all on tape, captured forever. What a sweet simple pleasure that made for a great ending of my day.
My simple pleasure to end my day!
