scarlett has taken the role of little mother. athena is so lucky.
she will gleefully set up the "diaper changing station!" and will joyfully inform me that the baby is screaming(as if i can't hear it).
scarlett must be breathing on her or touching her at all times.
it's really sweet. and in 5 years when the sisterly roles reverse, i'll pull these pictures out to remind scarlett of how much she smothered(loved) her little sister.
and my barfday. little mother insisted we wear party dresses. then she wanted to decorate my cake with a race car. after that she sneezed on it.
thomas ordered me a special cake and bought me exactly what i wanted: new knives.
though i do question the wisdom of giving me knives when i've been going on little sleep and none of my clothes fit. those two elements make me feel a little stabby.
