My favorite activity of summer? E1's desire to get E2 out of bed in the mornings. Now, between 7 and 7:30 am, E2 asks for E1.
E1 and E2 play games, talk, laugh, and hang out for about 10 - 15 minutes. I can hear and watch it all on E2's video monitor. It is the SWEETEST moment of the day.
It is a moment when I can feel the sisterly bond between the girls. It is a moment when E1 is the big sister taking care of E2. It is a moment when the belly laughs are so full. It is a moment when the discussions they have help me understand they are best friends. It is a moment of pure joy. It is a moment of security. It is a moment of love. It is a moment of no tattling, no crying, no antagonizing.
It is a moment in a long day that fills my heart and makes me smile.
