Not long ago, I was giving Nate a bath.
I asked my daughter Hannah if she would get his pj's out for me.
She left the bathroom and went into Nate's room. I expected her to return to the bathroom with them, but she didn't.
A little annoyed, I carried a be'toweled Nate into his room to find this;
A few weeks later, I got into my car to go to work, and this is what I found;
And then more recently, on our way home from skiing in Michigan over the Christmas break, Hannah and I drove together. When we stopped for a bathroom break, Hannah went inside the gas station and returned with this...which doesn't look like a big deal but she used her own Christmas money to buy this snack. She remembered my favorite kind of goodies, down to the salt and vinegar chips which I haven't bought in a very long time.
She's even willing to swap her favorite candy of all time with her baby brother.
Now that is sweet!
