...the sweetest words

This morning as I was sorting laundry in the garage and Daniel was scrounging for leftover soda among the recycle cans I called to Charles:

"Bud, could you please play with Daniel for a minute?"
"Sure Mama, you have a lot of work to do out here."

Bless him. For that, Charles, you may stay under our roof for the remainder of your days as a child. You may eat our food, be clothed and schooled, receive our love, and continue to be the sweet, endearing little man that you are. Thank you for noticing your mama, and for your willingness to be ever helpful.

And to your brother Thomas, who crawls into bed with me in the morning, and amidst my morning yuckiness whispers in my ear: "Mama, you are the beautifulest girl in the whole world." You too, Thomas the Charming, may stay with us and receive the above-mentioned benefits...
