The other night my daughter had a sleepover with her cousin, so it was just me and the boys. Needless to say, I missed her desperately. When her daddy went to work the next day, I was left with my two little guys and I got a taste of what it will be like when Leila Jade starts kindergarten in just a few weeks. You’d think that being down one kid would make life a bit easier, but in my case this couldn’t be further from the truth. Leila is my best friend, my helper, and a little mommy to her baby brothers.
When she’s gone it’s “where’s diddy?” (aka “sissy”) every five minutes from Landon. That kid just adores his big sis. In fact, between having a newborn and Landon’s complete disregard for anything I ask him to do, potty training just wasn’t happening with him… until my angel-child-daughter swooped in and took him under her wing. Yes, my just-turned-5-year-old daughter potty trained her brother. That in itself deserves its own blog post.
This kid is amazing. She is seriously wise beyond her years, yet such a silly goofball! She is the most caring, nurturing, loving, kind-hearted person I know. I can’t believe I created her! I highly recommend having a daughter like her before you have any more kids. It’s seriously like having a second mom around the house. Ha! I need to start paying this kid an allowance for how much of my sanity she saves me.
Tonight I found myself in the kitchen tidying up with the baby strapped in the ergo and Landon watching Mickey Mouse. Out the kitchen window was my beautiful daughter digging in the dirt. It was in that moment of calm that I was struck with just how lucky I am. It wasn’t an easy day. It wasn’t a clean day. But thanks to my little miss, it was a better day.
