Brotherly Love

Last night when it was time to give the kids a bath, the cutest thing happened. I give Peanut a bath first, as she is the easiest and fastest. So I put her in the tub and am in the process of washin her up, when James comes in. He stands next to me and laughs, "hua hawa wash air!" In other words Peanut wash hair...He then leans into the tub, taking her washclothe and ever so gently starts to wash her hair. As the water starts to drip onto herface, he says, "arry, hua awua!" In other words, sorry Peanut. And wipes her eyes very gently, laughing and patting her on the head. It was so cute! He is so good with her, when he is not jumping on her or pushing her over. I am so glad they are close toegther (they are 19 mos apart). Ahhh, the joys of parenting!

He is great...funny thing is he helped in the tub again tonight...although this time at the end, when I usually let Peanut play in the water a little, he stripped and climbed in the tub with her..It was soo cute, A Kodak moment if ewver I saw one. Too bad the camera was downstairs and I was upstairs with two kids in the tub!!!

The best way to repay the debts of our parents is to take best possible care of our own kids... God bless you :-)
