Pictureless Post...but priceless.

If I could've only caught on camera what I witnessed today, it would be PRICELESS. It's a cute little image that I will always remember. Cheesy, maybe...true, yes.
I sent the kids outside today to get some fresh air. The sun today definately gave us spring fever. They were jumping on the trampoline with all the neighbor kids and decided they wanted to go across the street to play at the other kids' house. Riley and the other boys hopped off the tramp leaving Madi trailing behind...(mind you, I'm watching the whole thing...Madi still makes me nervous on the tramp...she is OC!!) Back comes Riley as she is struggling to get off, and he grabs her coat while she climbs down, then proceeds with trying to put her coat on...they didn't quite manage the process and decided to head over to the neighbors....again with Madi bringing up the rear. Riley then turns around, runs back to Madi and grabs her coat so she could go run with them.
As frustrated as I get with him, he's sure a sweetheart & knows how to take care of his little sister!
What a sweet heart!!!

That is so sweet. I bet you thought at that moment, this is why I became a mom. Those moments get us through tougher times don't they?

That is so cute! There is nothing cuter than a big brother helping his little sis.

Riley, This message is for you. I thought that was so sweet of how you helped Madison. I have noticed that alot of times when I have come to visit and even when you come to my house to stay that you are always so helpful with Madison and Lily. Thats what sisters need is a protective big brother.
Grandma Chris loves you.. and I am so proud of how thoughtful you are.

And I've witnessed Riley helping Lily, too. He is a super-duper young man! I am so glad to have him close and be able to spend some time with him.
Love, Mom
