There were tears shed Sunday morning while trying to get ready for church. We walked into the service 5 minutes late looking “together”…but we weren’t!
Let me paint you a picture of half an hour before….
Abi in front of the mirror, dramatically bemoaning the fact that her braid “didnt look right” and she needed me to help (which I obliged).
Britain whining and chasing Isabelle around for stealing her favorite ring (you know – the gigantic gaudy Dollar Store red ruby kind!)
Isabelle fell to pieces when I was trying to dress her because she didnt have the same matching dress that Abi & Britain had.
And Evie threw a little fit because we couldnt find her purse when we were walking out the door….and she was fidgety and fussy because the bloomers I’d put on here were riding up her chunky thighs.
These sisters are sweet natured and the best of friends, but I have a feeling this is a foreshadowing of things to come. If there is this much drama in our home when they are 7, 5, 3 and 1…can you imagine what it will be like when they are 17, 15, 13, and 11 and you add hormones, shoes, makeup and mood swings?
Heaven help us!
For today, Im glad the tears shed are over braids….not boys!
