October 11, 2011 - Best Part of My Day

The best part of my day came at a seriously unusual moment.  

Grace skipped her nap today and so by 4:00 pm was being extremely difficult. Dinner didn't go well, post-dinner play time didn't go well.  Lots of crying involved.  We came upstairs for baths and during some tantrum about something Grace grabbed the camera strap that was hanging over the desk and pulled our camera on the floor.  We, her parents, did not react so happily and Grace ended up in a "time out" in her room with the door closed.  Screaming.  

Then, one of the cutest things we've ever seen happened.

Noah super-crawled across the living room to Grace's door, got up on his knees and leaned against the door, and cried.  

He wanted her!  Or he wanted us to let her out!  Save my sister!

"Precious" does not even come close to describing that image.  They were both crying and miserable, and Kristoffer and I were really, really happy.

Just catching up and loved this. I'm familiar with this too. When Brady cries, Jack (no matter how happy he was previously) immediately begins to cry too. Sweet sibling love!
