Dear Little Sister,
Thanks so much for coming to my rescue this week! Ten days of single-parenthood would have really thrown me into a psychotic state. However, your talent for seeing beauty in the ordinary and humor in the everyday kept me looking at the bright side of life.
You are Mary Poppins, Rachael Ray, Claire Daines and Oprah all rolled up into one adorable package!
Please do not let anything you saw here this week discourage you from having children of your own. I honestly believe that your offspring will NOT throw tantrums, make messes with the sofa cushions or poop. They will certainly not be as loud and boisterous as my crazy gang. I think your future children will probably be very sedate and docile. You know...like their dad.
(Besides, you won't have four kids all at once anyway. You'll kind of ease into it. Babies usually just come one at a time--unless you hit the old 'twin jackpot' as two of your three sisters have done--and what are the odds of that happening?!)
You have taught me so much this week. Thanks for kicking the old gabblog up a notch with your tech-know-how. Thanks for introducing me to ramekins. Thanks for making this dessert in the ramekins. It is truly amazing that I have lived 37 years without ramekins in my life. You've made my home a better place.
Thanks for the laughs and late-nights, the stories and sing-a-longs, the hugs and the heart-to-hearts.
Just remember, "I'm peanut butter and you are jelly and we're so happy on our little piece of bread!"
Come back soon!
Love, Your Crazy Older Sister
