Further Proof Has Been Uncovered…

February 6, 2009

That proves the Little One is the sweetest child on the face of the Earth. Now recently she has taken to some nasty temper tantrums, but I can forgive them.

I’ve discussed perspective { PartI and Part II } before with regard to kids and birth order, Since the Little One is my last baby, she is by default the sweetest, cutest, most wonderful second child a person could ask for.

This morning she proved it. When I got her up this morning, she greeted me with a “Top o’ the morning” poop. {Just a shout out to my friend Deb who coined that term back when the Big One was just a wee one. She probably doesn’t even remember saying it, but it stuck with me and yes, I think of Deb every morning when I am greeted with the poopy diaper smell as I open the Little One’s door}

Anyway, after I got the Little One all cleaned up and smelling like cucumber melon or whatever scent the Huggies wipes from Costco are. She looked me straight in the eye and said. “Mank you, Mommy.”

What kids says thank you after a diaper change? The Big One has never said thank you for wiping my butt and Lord knows I still wipe her butt a few times a week, so I’ve certainly wiped her butt more than the Little One’s.

So today, I’d like to say for all the world to see, thank you God for the Little One. She rocks.

Don’t be getting all psycho-babbly on me about favoring a child. I love the Big One just the same. And every day I thank the good Lord above for both of my healthy-developmentally on-track, smart, beautiful, wonderful girls. I know that I am truly blessed.

    I have days where one child will do something that reminds me how much I love them. It’s okay to feel a special something for one at a time, I think.
