Sweetness......

Emma Sage woke up this morning and she had developed a bad cold overnight.....the kind of buggy nose that just begs for you to keep a box of Kleenex with you.

After 'blowing' out a few times, she looks at me in all seriousness and says

"I am ill, and I can't go to Greta's banquet tonight. I don't want to get everyone sick!"

Awe.....my sweet little girl.

I tell her...."are you sure? Abbie will be there"

She replies...."No, I think you need to call PopPop and I can go there and cuddle and read books"

So I called PopPop during the day while she was at school [yes, I sent a sick kid to school.....as I said, it came on over night and she had a good 'blow out' in the morning, and I sent her with a box of Kleenex]

She got home and her face looked like it had been through a war......red and chapped and she was blowing full steam ahead.

So she went to PopPop's to cuddle........and now she is sleeping soundly and I am going to keep her home from school tomorrow. My smart little girl was right, I don't want her getting others sick.

Here is a picture taken a few years ago......but when I think of the 'Sweetness' my little girl expresses....this image captures her sweetness perfectly!

What a sweety. She is way more considerate than most Human's I know. I have had a cold and a Gastro and we haven't even made it to Christmas yet. Hope Emma Sage is feeling better and has a magical Christmas!

Very thoughtful! I send a box of lotion kleenex to school with mine and slather on Aquaphor every single day 2x daily between the months of Nov- to April! BTW- it would be lovely for our girls to meet each other!
