I love to hear my kids playing together. There is nothing more joyous than the sound of them laughing. And laughing together? Amazing. I love that they have the ability to make each other laugh until their little bitty bellies are aching. I can't tell you how many times I've heard "You've got your hands full" or "wow, so close together in age!". I can't imagine my kids any further apart. I love that they have a built in best friend. I can remember the first time my daughter stuck up for her little brother. My kids were having a rough week at home. Everything had turned into fights and I think we spent more time in timeouts than playing. That Sunday at church Madeline was playing with a little boy who was not being very nice to Jack. I suppose she had decided enough was enough and stood up, took one of the toys and handed it to Jack and said "Hey, you have to share with MY brother. Here you go little buddy." It was then that their friendship really took off. That was a year ago and we've since added another child. I'm so blessed, and my hands are indeed, very full.
