Sister Secrets

Yesterday E. walked up to A. and told her a secret. She cupped her hands over A.’s ears and A. tilted her head up so sweetly and listened so intently. I was torn, it was the most perfect picture and so wanted to grab my camera, but I didn’t want to ruin the moment so I just sat and quietly watched. It is a picture forever burned in my brain, though.

I could only hear “psst, psss, psst…” but then A. looked up at E. and they both laughed like it was the most delicious secret ever.

I asked, “what are you guys whispering about?”
E. giggling said, “nothing, Mama,” and ran off into the other room.
Then little “Polly Parrot” also said, “nufin'” and ran screeching after her big sister.

It reminded me why I really was hoping E. would have a sister someday. Someone to share her secrets with and someone who would always be her best friend.

Although, they were playing dollhouse after that, and this was the scene I ran across…



Are they plotting to overthrow the management? Or maybe just make Mommy crazy enough that she will jump from our balcony?

    I think that might me a sign that they are plotting something………… Carrie, these warning signs are not subtle…..maybe the move will distract them. At least you’re not moving into a two story house…ah woops. Don’t worry. I just remembered, as long as you have a trampoline under the window you are all set. : )

    I can imagine that urge to run for the camera. It sounds like such a “moment”. You have that picture in your head though… and now you have a written entry as a reminder too!

    I’m back again! Just wanted to say thanks for the comment on my photo. It gets me so excited when I get comments. Makes you really understand that there are people out there seeing what you’re doing! And… yes… it makes me miss babyhood (and not just almost) But… we’ve only got Zoe and plan on having a second. Maybe one day Zoe will be telling secrets to another little person.
