I adore my children. They make me laugh, cry and feel so proud. They have wonderful personalities and hearts of gold. They make the silliest faces, right when I'm trying to get a nice shot of them. But that's who they are.
I took these today, out at my mom's house after Sunday dinner. My daughter absolutely adores her big brother. But of course, he just wants to torture her all the time. This was a rare moment, of her showing her true feelings and him not trying to fight her OFF! I think you can see the "adoration," in her face here.
I was talking with my own brother today about this. My daughter thinks her brother is so swell, that she would like to marry him. Yuck. But of course, she is only 5, and that's the only way she can think of how to express her true love & admiration for him. I looked at my brother, who is 3 years younger than me, and said, "I can't remember EVER wanting to marry you!" And he laughed and said, "yeah, no attraction here!" It was so funny. We never got along as well as my kids do. Don't get me wrong, they have their moments when they fight and tattle, and get on each other's nerves. But for the most part, they really enjoy one another.
I'm glad my brother and I grew up. Because now, I just adore him. But don't tell him, it's a secret. LOL
