Converstion with Selah...


Me: Selah, I'm going to take a shower. Rinnah is laying on the floor in the living room. She's fine right now, but if she starts fussing just put her toy over her and turn it on. Okay?
Selah: (while in her room playing with play-doh) Sure, Mom.
Took my shower and got dressed. Walked out to the living room and see Rinnah contently playing with her toy. She saw me and fussed a little, and here comes Selah running out of her room.
Me: Did you give Rinnah her toy?
Selah: Yes, you take a shower and her fus and I wook at her. Her okay now. I pway wif pway-doh now.

Just amazes me that she can listen to those instructions and follow through, but the process of putting a toy away just gets her lost.
Some have called me brave, but I believe in trust leading to bigger and better behavior. And I know she loves her baby sister and would never let her lay there and cry... She is so sweet!

Rinnah is beautiful :)

your blog title, "The Portis Family Blogs," reminds me of The Sound of Music, Curt's line at the ball, "The Von Trapp Family Dancers!"
