Three years, eleven days…

Ok, so almost two weeks ago, I promised a post about Lydia.  I could write about her…or I could just show you how cute she is.  Fair enough?


Ok…maybe just one story.

The other day my mom and I took Asa and Lydia shopping with us while Marshall and Carter went to the movies.  After we’d shopped for a few hours, we decided to get a snack for the road.  Lydia asked for “candy”, and I picked out a Kit-Kat for her.  I don’t think that she’d ever had one before…but I can guarantee that it won’t be the last one she ever has!  I broke it into the four pieces, and started to drive.  She was quiet for about 15 and then this…

Lydia:  I’m sorry I ate Carter’s snack.
Me:  What are you talking about?  We didn’t get Carter a snack?
Lydia: Yes, we did.  But I ate it.
Me: Babe, that was your snack.  I’m sure Carter will have a snack with Daddy.
Lydia: Well, I really wanted to save it for him…but I started eating and I just forgot about him.

It’s the thought that counts, right?

    I LOVE your daughter– how many times have I been driving home, intending to save a bite of something for someone, and it doesn’t happen because I eat it all? At least she’s honest about it- how adorable is she 🙂
