Avery learns to share

You know when you have a couple of kids running around and the baby screams 'cause she wants something...well, everyone just kind of gives her whatever she wants just to stop the screaming. Somehow it all works together like a nice machine and you don't even realize it is happening. UNTIL... a friend comes to visit. Especially if this friend happens to be a boy... Yes, Avery's friend Owen dropped by for the day and they learned to share, ALL DAY! It was a fabulous day of learning and I realized what a selfish, tempered little girl I have. Oh don't those boys bring out the best in us. On a side note, can I just say how much I appreciate parents who discipline and train, (YES I said THOSE words) their children. It makes it so much easier to babysit them. Owen was a delight to have around, not only did he STOP doing whatever it was he was doing when I said, "No", but he also taught my little girl to share. Please come back, Owen. We had fun!

I know when I babysit children who parents discipline them, I am always giving thanks to God. It makes the day so much easier!!

Too cute! I love the photo of Avery on the phone :) Oh, and I think you have a typo..."pretty amazing"...Shouldn't that be "pretty dorky?"
Keep the photos of your cuties coming! Do you mind if I add you to my blogroll?
