Empathy & Patience

Mickey wanted to mow the lawn with me. Jimmy wanted to practice soccer with me. But they knew it was Gabby time, while Mom and Jonny caught up on sleep, and lay down beside her for well over an hour and entertained her with ga ga's and boo's! and kisses and tickles.

The empathy and patience Gabrielle is teaching them at such a young age is remarkable. Amy and I are having to unlearn and let go of previously held beliefs and expectations. For them, it's all they know.
