My little Laney

I wanted to post about my sweet daughter. The past couple of mornings she has woken up about 6:00 all on her own. Wednesday morning she showered, dressed, ate breakfast, finished her spelling project, and made not only her lunch but Max's as well all before 7 a.m.!  I was so proud of her because most mornings, getting her up is a lot like getting me up!  I hate mornings.  So yesterday after she came home from school, she was talking to Max while I was on the computer and the conversation went like this:

Elena: Max did you get my note I left in your lunchbox?

Max: yeah but I couldn't read your writing. What does it say?

Elena: Try and read it and I will help you.

Max (reading): Max, I love you. Work rrrreee.......

Elena (helping): really 

Max: really hard at school so you can get good grades........ bee what does that say?

Elena: because 

Max:  because mommy will be really proud of you. Have a good day!  

After he finished the note, Max he gave her a big hug and said, "I love you too Laney!" 

I sat quietly listening to my beautiful grown up daughter with a smile on my face and so much love in my heart to have such a caring child!  Most days her and Max fight like cats and dogs locked in a kennel, but on days like this I think, "I am so blessed to have such great kids!"
