So close, yet so far away

So today when I picked Bryce up from school he bounced in the car and immediately said that he had something for Sara Kate. Even before buckling, he had to dig it out of his backpack while she eagerly waited. He pulled out this colorful bracelet and began to show her how to put it on. She was obviously touched by this act of kindness and began telling Bryce how nice it was and how much she loved it. Then, a few minutes later, she said, (in her sweetest, most endearing voice) "Bryc-er (her nickname for him), I love you." To which he replied, "Don't even say that or I'll take it away!"

[Sigh] We were so close to having a sweet, little family moment there....... so close, so very close! Regardless, Bryce does get bonus points for thinking of his sister while picking out prizes from the good behavior box.

Hug them, oh so tight. Many more happy times are coming.

How sweet, at my house I would have been checking the item out to be sure it didn't have some sort of explosive device on it. Because it is that at the precious stage we are in right now, it is every man for himself. (Most of the time anyway.)

You are sooo sweet Bryce.

I'm not surprised at either one of their reactions, because the are both sooooo sweet. The real challenge is getting them on the same page at the same time....something to shoot for away.

Proud of you Bryc-er for thinking of your sister, and the same for you Sara Kate because you really do love your bother.
