Tears to Jammies
Isaac: Sophia, are you ready to come out and eat dinner with us.
Isaac: Do you want to just stay in your bed then.
Isaac: I think you better just stay in your bed.
Sophia: No, no, no!
Isaac: Are you ready to come out then?
He picks her up and carries her through the hall.
Isaac: Are you ready to tell Mama that you love her?
Sophia buries her head in his chest and tries to avoid eye contact with me.
I made her sit with me at our "breakfast bar" (which is actually more like a meal bar, since we don't really have a kitchen table) and she shared my food with me. After we ate, she was in good spirits and sat in my lap on the couch and even giggled at Isaac's antics as he recounted his first day at his new job. I got up at one point to get some water and noticed a box on the counter...from Grandma Becky! Sophia, when asked, was very ready to open it up and was overjoyed to see all of what her Grandma had sent. And she was so, so happy about her new jammies. After she had them on she danced around the living room and sang a song she quickly thought up called, "New Jammies". We were even happier for those jammies, considering they are the zip up, button at top, kind that she hasn't figured out how to take off yet (just yesterday morning, Isaac found her completely naked in her bed when he went to get her up!)
So thank you Grandma, for the much needed stuff (and the extra fun stuff), and thank the Lord for bad evenings gone good!
