At the party Ella went to tonight they rode the carousel. Jude wanted to ride the spinner with the big girls but there was not enough room. He was tired so he started crying. Ella tried to get him to go ahead and get on with them but he would not saying it was too crowded and he wouldn't fit (I don't think the other girls really wanted him on their anyway). She got so upset that she got off and said "fine, if he's not riding then I'm not riding"...I gasped for air... Were these really my children? I could not even step in at this point. I had to just sit back and watch this glorious moment of a big sister actually caring for her younger brother. It was beautiful, I tell you...a true Christmas miracle I will remember forever.
