I walked back into the kitchen after folding some clothes, and this is what I found:
My daughter, Clara. sitting in front of her brother, Charlie, with all the accoutrement required for a tea party sitting between them.
“What are you doing, Clara?” I asked.
“I’m having a very special tea party for my baby brother! I love him so much!”
I called for Elysha, not wanting her to miss a moment of this, and she was quickly invited to join the kids for tea.
I suspect that this will remain as one of my top 10 parenting moments for a very long time.
