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 :-)
