Why My Daughter Rocks

Advice to anyone who is going to have 4 boys: Have a Lydia first. That girls is awesome! She got up yesterday, and got not only herself dressed for church, but Justice and Clayton too, without being asked. Unfortunately they cancelled church because the roads, and many peoples basements were flooded due to hurricane Ike. Funny that they cancelled church for a hurricane in the exact middle of the continent. (No, it wasn't actually a hurricane by the time it reached us, it was just a massive amount of rain. Duh.) Well, our basement did flood a bit, but I can't complain. At least I still have a basement. Anyway, Lydia volunteered and took a long turn with the shop-vac in the basement. Next she cleaned out the hall closet without being asked. You could say that she's angling for something, and maybe she is, but she is very often like this. She is just the best girl ever!

Wow, cleaning out closets? She must have a good example for a mom. I don't think my children would ever think of cleaning a closet...they've never seen it done before!

oh yeah, and who cares if she's angling for something. she has learned to work the system in the correct way (instead of crying and begging and whining and suchlike). that's pretty smart i think, and should be encouraged!! plus, that's good behavior. i wouldn't worry about the source, just enjoy it.
