Topic: bursting with pride!
Those of you who have already made it past 4 1/2 will truly understand what I mean when I say we had some real rough patches this summer! The good news is 4 and 3/4 is looking pretty good right now!
We went to a restaurant dinner for a friend's birthday. There were several families I didn't know and there were 2 children a little bit younger than Kate. Towards the end of the meal the other children started to literally run laps around the table. Before I knew what was happening Kate got called into this game of tag. I was in the middle of preparing the cake to bring to the table so I never said anything and she stopped on her own very quickly. Then they got really out of control (no one else seemed to notice which always blows my mind). While these kids ran around and whined for the cake I was cutting (which I said they couldn't have until they sat down) Kate served the cake to 15 adults. I was so proud but the best part was how proud of herself she was. I just love these moments and with the summer we had it was a welcome one indeed!
