A couple of days ago I was watching Kimberly's kids. Since they have moved up here the kids have been together a lot and get along really good. I've been so happy with how they have become such good friends. You really never know, just because parents are friends doesn't always mean the the kids will follow. But in our case, they all get along great! So, on with my story about the other day. Sarah and Andrew are a year apart in age, both of them the youngest kids in the family. Now I feel the need to explain something....Sarah has three older brothers, as you all know, and she can hold her own. She's a little tough sometimes (most of the time) and when she can get away with it likes to be a bit bossy. Andrew has one older sister and we all know that girls can be a little "mothering" or that they like to be the leader. So needless to say he's probably been the one who's told what to do most of the time. Sarah has picked up on that totally! She likes to lead Andrew around, takes his toys, can be very pushy with him and sometimes not so nice either (I'm working on that part). I was sitting in my living room talking to Andrew when Sarah comes up to him, grabs him by the hand, leads him to a place more "roomy" and turns to face him. I wish that I could have heard what he was thinking. It probably went something like this "Uh-oh what's she doing now? Where is she taking me and why did she turn to look at me?" There was no music in the back ground but she started twirling around him and trying to dance with him. It was so cute! He was quite a good sport, although he didn't really look super happy about it. I will have to teach her at some point that the boys are supposed to lead and the girls follow.
The other thing she likes to do is hug him from behind. Can't you just see the love that he has for her?
I finally got a smile out of him. I'm pretty sure that it's because she wasn't touching him at this point.
Just so you all know, Andrew really does like Sarah. He talks about her and plays with her lots. I just didn't want you all to think that this stuff happens all of the time and I wanted to end this post on a good note.
