Right before Maggie and I left my house yesterday to go pick up her brothers at the bus stop, she had informed me that her babies were awake and needed milk. Earlier she had put them in the cradle and covered them up and rocked them to sleep and sung them a lullaby before she and I played a game of cards. But then, as good mothers do, she had heard them wake up and knew what they needed. She came to me and asked for milk in a cup for them and I got her some pretend milk in a sippy cup. Then I got busy getting myself ready to leave and finding her shoes and putting them on her and getting her in her car seat.
When I got home last evening, I found her babies waiting patiently for their milk right where she'd put them.
I love that little girl. She has stolen her MerMer's heart.
