Well it was actually yesterday. But I was too busy avoiding cleaning my floors to honor my beloved middle child on the actual "holiday"! Who knew there was such a thing?!
So in true middle child fashion I am going to honor her (a day late) through all the adorable things she has said recently...about her baby sister:) Because let's be honest here. All those jokes about the forgotten middle child. Well there is definitely some truth there.
And now onto the cuteness direct from the middle child herself:
Her response to Hannah crying in her crib after waking in the morning, "It's ok Hannah. You have your baby. Don't cry."
Because (sadly) in Charlotte's world all you need is a thumb and a "baby" to be happy.
After watching Hannah rub her breakfast all over herself, "Mama, she got in a praaaadick-a-mint".
Yes. Yes. Indeed she did.
Later after breakfast.
C: This bath is too hot!
Me: No it's not. See Hannah is in it.
C: Thats because she can't talk!
Touché Charlotte. Touché.
Upon discovering her sister had a dirty diaper, "Mama, you have a problem. Hannah's poopy. Change her diaper already."
In all seriousness this child. My middle child brings me so much joy and delight every day. Her smile lights up my world! And she can make me laugh even on my crabbiest days. Sure she can be stubborn. And quietly mischievous. She challenges my parenting on a daily basis. But I can't imagine my life without her. Her hugs and 'smoochies' are the best! And she is a great little sister and big sister. God knew exactly what He was doing when He put this girl right smack in the middle of our family. Our Charlotte Esme. Oh how I love this girl!
*"baby" in our family means tabby blanket/lovey...strange I know...it's a loony story:)
