Warning: The story below contains a bit of potty talk.
Yesterday afternoon in our home turned out to be a really sweet time of playing together for Isaiah and Marian. I was cooking in the kitchen when I heard Isaiah tell Marian, "Come on, we can poop together. Let's hold hands."
I was so glad they were willing to repeat the pose for me once I had grabbed the camera. And then they were so taken with my excitement for them that they wanted to hold hands for jumping off the couch (a daily routine at our place) and running too.
Sadly, this sweetness is not the exclusive way of things in our home. Just a few hours earlier Marian received a good bite on her arm from her loving big brother... and that was the second this week. (These are the only two times we've known him to bite, and we hope he is well convinced now of the unworthiness of the activity!)
