I Need a Hug!

This has been a challenging week in our household.

Lily has been especially cranky and whiney. For me, the hardest part of staying home with them is when Lily is this way. She demands to be held all of the time and can be downright ornery, as we like to say in the South. When she's in that kind of mood, she tends to be a little snappy and it just hurts Ann Catherine's feelings so bad. Ann Catherine has such a tender heart, and it just upsets her when Lily isn't nice to her.

So, you can imagine my delight today when I saw this! I was washing dishes this morning and I heard Lily say, "Hi, Sissy!" I looked and they were in the recliner and Lily had thrown her arms around Ann Catherine and was just squeezing her. They were both giggling! I grabbed my camera and snapped a picture.

What makes it even more special is that Ann Catherine is sick with a cold today, and Lily has been so good. That hug just made Ann Catherine's day!

And mine :)

Aww they are so cute! I can't imagine sweet Lily being ornery. You must be joking. :)

It's funny. She is truly the easiest child in the world, and just requires so little. But when she is cranky, watch out!! :)

I feel the same way! Camden is so easy 90% of the time, but when he has a bad day he just whines & cries all day! It really is the hardest part of staying home!
