The other day I took Caroline on her very own shopping trip to the Dollar Tree.

She was adamant that she wear her "Christmas Hat."

(Funny, it looks an awful lot like a mesh bag for laundering your delicates in the washing machine.)

It was awesome.

This same child, after two weeks of bickerbickerbicker with Big Sis, played hours of Mama and Baby outside today.

As we drove to Half Price Books later, the following comment escaped her lips: "My heart is filled with joy because you gave Great Joy to me. Thank you, Eliza!"

O, my smitten heart.

The last couple paragraphs of Melissa Wiley's post at Here in the Bonny Glen sum it all up perfectly, this life we're leading and trying to capture in print. Anyone else relate?
