August 17th

This evening, the boys were goofing around, and Zander split one of his toenails and it started bleeding. He and I were sitting on the kitchen floor cleaning his toe and bandaging him up. Jace stood over Zander, rubbed his arm, and said, “Oh, Zander, I am just so sorry. I am so sorry that you are hurting so bad. I’m so sorry.” He wasn’t apologizing for hurting Zander (he didn’t hurt him – Zander hit it on the coffee table), but he was genuinely sorry that Zander was hurt. It was, by far, the sweetest display of affection that I have seen between these two.

And, on the funny note for the day: The boys have been just terrible about going down for naps or bed. I told them this afternoon that if they didn’t obey and go to sleep, I was going to give them each three spankings. Zander pipes up with, “But I don’t want 3! I want 14 because that’s how high I can count!” SIGH…..
