talking to angels

Every weekday morning is about the same, give or take some paniced moments and/or general grumpiness from at least one person in the clan. Okay grumpiness from, well, me. I wake up to Kate petting my arm. I then shower, make sure noah's up, get clothes for the girls, make breakfast and pack lunches. Noah leaves to his carpool. Peter brushes teeth. I brush hair - and sometimes even put in a clip or pony. Peter takes kate to daycare and I'm left with Sarah to get ready under semi-calm circumstances.

Today was exactly that. Pretty standard day, until I overheard Sarah talking to herself. She was behind me intense and focused, something rather rare for this bundle of energy. This is how it went.

"I have to call Grandpa"
......picks up phone...
"hello, grandpa? Are you still dead?"
......listening....
"you are? okay, well what are you doing?
......listening....
"okay, bye"

I know. adorable huh? I managed, somehow, not to cry.

Oh my gosh, that made ME want to cry! That is the cutest story. Thank goodness for blogs and a scrapping mommy, because that will never be forgotten.

Oh, my heart! I'm so glad I didn't read this a few hours ago or I'd have bawled my eyes out.

Oh sweet Sarah! Makes you wish you could preserve that understanding that little children have, to remind them of it later!
