Rain, Rain...Go Away

Our 4 yo twins each have a day during the week where one goes to preschool while the other stays home.  This allows me to spend one day (or at least 3 hours) every week with each of them individually. Today, I have my little Linden here with me.  She's the "younger" of the two, by two and a half minutes, or "Baby B" as she was called at the time of their birth. 

It's raining here today...again. Linden looked so darn cute in her yellow rain coat this morning; I asked her to let me take a few pictures and she agreed. So I'm posting this really for no other reason than to show off one of my very special blessings.

In a few minutes we are going to go into my craft studio/room where I'll work on headband orders.  Linden will do me the huge favor of sorting my buttons.  This is where I give her about 500 buttons and a few plastic ice trays and ask her to sort them according to color.  I can't tell you how many times my daughters' little hands have sorted my buttons.  In the end they all end up back in the original container where they will wait to be sorted again on another day. I love spending time with the girls as they sort buttons.  The converstation almost always starts off with a detailed discussion involving our favorite buttons which are usually pink.  Where the conversation goes from there is anyone's guess as, it's entirely up to the button sorter.  But, I can tell you (from experience) that topics often include kittens and candy (on a good day, both).
