Taking charge!!!

I'm still laughing at this story......

Earlier today, I had sent Jake to his room for a time-out (can't remember why). He then came downstairs claiming he was ready to be done. I told him he needed to go back to his room and I would come up and talk to him. He started arguing with me and then all of a sudden Grace piped up with a very bossy/firm voice-- and with finger pointing and hand gestures flying-- said, "Jacob, upstairs now, Jacob!!!" Jake looked at me like, "did she really just say that??", and then smiled and walked nicely upstairs!!

**By the way, I got to thinking that this little story might sound like I'm OK with my children to talk sassy to each other. I'm not, and Grace was "reminded" that she needs to use nice words with her brother. But, it was so stinkin' funny because we've never heard her say this before, that I just had to share. :)

She has Sass with a capital "S". But man, she is as sweet as can be!!! We all (mom, dad, and brother) seem to be extra smitten over her lately. Seriously though, Jake and Grace couldn't be more in love with each other. Sure, they have their sibling moments, but several times a day, she runs up to him saying, "Jacob, Jacob" and gives him a big hug. He's always telling her he loves her. When I pick him up from school, Grace always runs in ahead of me squealing his name and giving him a big hug. He just beams with pride!!! Though, we did have to keep her quiet at his karate class because she kept yelling, "hi Jacob". And was blowing him kisses!!!

You have such amazing children! I hope when our 2nd comes home, R and she love each other as much as Jacob and Grace do!

That story just made my week! How beautiful and funny and full of zest. Grace and Jacob have that extra special thing--and I am sure it is because their mama and daddy have modeled the way. How fun to have this story to tell them both one day!!!

Love her hair, too. I may need some advice soon if Sitina's hair keeps growing as fast as it is growing now.
