The Best Things

Sometimes being a little brother is hard. Sometimes your big brother and big sister get to go play at their friends' house and you have to stay with your mom. But then sometimes you feel a little sad and your mom feels a little bad and you get to drive through the Dairy Queen to get a chocolate dipped ice cream cone. Then you get to sit on the front porch steps in the sunshine on a lovely spring day and make a mess of your face, hands, shirt, and pants while your mom tells you how much she loves you and how cute you are!

Sometimes the hard things come and magically transform into the best things with a little help from ice cream cones and love.

What a cute boy!!! I love the smile in this last picture! :) Lilie has been having the same problem every once in a while - Hazel gets to go play, she has to stay with mommy. It's hard being a younger sibling, isn't it? Good job helping him to feel better and have special mommy time!

HOW CUTE!!! I love that your boys hair is long... we just cut Noah's and it was getting there. :)

Congrats on turning disappointment into gratification... sounds like a fun day with your boy.

Ha! I love this post! So precious.

P.S. it was Frou Frou that I saw not Imogen Heap. She's cool too though!

Imogen Heap is Frou Frou! That was just the name she had when she was partnered up with this guy and then the record label went under and she changed to just her name... Imogen Heap!
