Caught being awesome: FLUFFY :)

Hummer is outside ponderously pulling weeds for his two required "Weed-free Zones" (yes, I make my kids really work. . . .not hard enough, though! :). He has been out there for almost 2 hours doing what should be a 10-minute job. He has come in numerous times asking for help. (Before you feel sorry for him, you should know that he filled two plastic bags full all by himself in about 10 minutes a couple weeks ago -- he can do it!)
Anyway. He's miserable, mostly because he can't stand being by himself, and I would help him, but need to make dinner and take care of Rosebud. Fluffy had homework to do, so I suggested he go out there and do it and keep Hummer company. I thought for sure he would complain, but he said cheerfully, "Okay!"
He's out there now, and I can hear cheerful conversation between them. So awesome. I love you, Fluffy!

P.S. Exacto was also caught being awesome holding Rosebud while I typed this post. :)

Good job, Michelle, for noticing and noting the positive acts of Fluffy and Exacto. I sure LOVE your sons--oh, and your daughter too--oh, and their parents!

Don't you love having older kids to help take care of the baby?
