I couldn’t help but give Jemma two photos this week. A little side by side of her blossoming dramatics.
Photo one … “Mama, mama … I’m crying. I’m so terribly sad I can hardly express myself!”
Photo two … “Mama, do you see me? Are my pretend tears working?”
And Max, just piercing into my soul with his huge gray eyes saying, “Don’t believe her Mama, she’s just giving you a hard time. Oh, and while you’re looking at me – why don’t you pick me up, that’s what I like best!”
These children. They keep me busy. Give me mountains of smiles. And stretch my patience farther than I ever thought they could be stretched. Character building. That’s what children are. The most precious test of who I am and who I’ll become.
