Must be Doing Something Right


As I've mentioned, Ella really wanted to sell cookies at the Farmer's Market and so I helped her to make it happen.  I'm not sure if I mentioned that she sold out in about 1 and a half to 2 hours.  She was a really good salesperson {and cute}.  We really did have quite a few bags of cookies.  I was really proud of her.  But that's just the beginning of my pride.  Later when I asked what she wanted to do with her earnings, she said she wanted to buy a birthday gift for Miles {I had already bought one for her to give him}.  My heart just melted.  She told me she wanted to go to Toys R Us to pick something out.  So I took her the day before her brother's birthday.  She was so careful to pick out just the right gift, with a little help from me because Miles had told me some of the things he wanted.  She ended up getting him a {toy} laptop.  She got him a nice card and wrapping paper too.  And when he saw that gift all wrapped up, he could. not. wait. to open it.  When we had the family party {after the kid party}, it was the first gift he opened.  Now he loves that thing and shares it with Ella.

So even though I often wonder if I'm doing anything right with the kids, it's occurrences like this that make me feel a little more confident that we are doing SOMETHING right!
