Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
This morning as the littles were enjoying their oatmeal I suddenly heard the plaintive wail of "Mama!" from the 4 year old in...... that tone. You know the tone children use when they are about to rat out a sibling who is wronging them deeply. "Yes, Honey?" I replied. "P is eating my CRUMBS!" I look over at the 2 yo who is happily scarfing any stray oatmeal pieces that are flying out of 4 yo's bowl and onto the table. Dh exchanged choked back a laugh and I replied "Well then, keep your crumbs in your bowl." "Oh, o.k." he said happy to have his little problem solved.
Feeling confident in my mediating abilities I briefly debate heading to Washington DC to dole out some of my God given wisdom to the Democrats and Republicans...Somehow though I think common sense may be lost on them.
So, I think I'll stay here with my tender hearted little crumb snatchers..
