Mommy: "Tomorrow you and Daddy are going to go to Cousin N's baptism. A and I have to stay home because she's sick."

C: "Why can't Daddy stay home with A? I want to see you dance."

Mommy: "Umph. Well, Cousin N's mommy is Daddy's little sister, not mine, so really Daddy should go."

C: "But Aunt L is all grown up."

Mommy: "She's still Daddy's little sister just like A will always be your little sister."

C: "But Aunt L doesn't live with us."

Mommy: "No, and when you and A grow up you'll have your own houses too."

C: "I will miss A when we have our own houses. I really love her."

Two shows of sibling affection in less than 24 hours. I'm filled with motherly joy.
