LAZY ME



It's Fatherhood Friday, over at DAD-BLOGS, make sure and visit and read all the cool articles....




I say lazy above, however, I am really just too pooped to write much this week.




I will offer up a cool little happening here...




Recently, we had friends over for dinner who have two wonderful children. One, a special needs child, had Bella absolutely fascinated. Of course, the other was her partner in crime for playing later that evening.




But, I digress:




We were seated at the dinner table, Bella included...(she loves sitting at the "Big Girl Table". (ah geez, c'mon, it's the DINNER table) LOL! This included Daddy & Papa, the friends and their two children. Although, the one child was seated in his personal space, as he requires, he was near the edge of the table.




Anyway, I happened to glance over as he was attempting to reach for his sippy cup...he was just out of reach, fingers outstretched and just barely able to touch the cup. Bella looked over, realized his dilemma, without being prodded or encouraged by any of us, and gently slid his cup into his fingers.




Many of you may think, OK, what's the big deal. But, for me, it makes me tear up. Realizing our child is only two and a half, and yet, she already shows sign of compassion and caring for her fellow human beings.




WOW! Amazing eh?




Now, if only the rest of the world would catch up up to Bella ;-)


P.S. Also above is a recent pic of our little one. enjoying her dinner outside in our courtyard. She LOVES pasta. Of course, she also loves wearing the oddest hats :-)

Very cute.
And great that you noticed that. Too often I think that parents wait too long to emphasize the "niceties". You two obviously started early without even knowing it! :)

Andrew's Daddies said...

GREAT story. Bella sounds like a caring little girl. And look at how she goes at that pasta....

Jason said...

Her hat is adorable and far from odd. And good for her for being such a thoughtful person!

she looks as if she's ready to garden w that hat...very cute :)

Otter Thomas said...

She is doing a good job with the pasta. I usually end up wearing a lot more than that.

I am with Melisa--you noticed which makes the entire event important. You know like the whole tree falling in woods. Great pic too!

KWG said...

How sweet is that? Those are moments to store in a vial and hang around daddy's neck.

Rob said...

Great pic, looks like she did a good job on the pasta.

Mocha Dad said...

That looks like some good pasta. I need to get the recipe.

Isabella said...

Aww...how awesome. Isn't it amazing how many teary-eyed moments we have as parents? And here I thought I was a sap before...

Great hat! I think I have one just like it. :)

Just shows that compassion and tolerance is a natural behavior.

WeaselMomma said...

That is beyond sweet and heartwarming! What a wonderful little girl. That was a great post. BTW, I love your signature.

Amy said...
