Just a reminder to ourselves and to all, this is a blog about our whole family. Not everything in our lives revolves around our cancers. Therefore, we wanted to share this little tidbit about Sadie.
Monday night I was giving Sadie her bath and she had put all her bath toys and all the shampoo bottles into the water. When Nathan walked in to join us he asked in a surprised voice, "Who put all of these toys into the tub?" Sadie searched the room with a look of astonishment on her face, as if she, too, were surprised by the scene. Nathan prodded, "Did Sadie do it?" "Nooooo," she said. "Did mommy do it?" Again she said, "Noooooo." "Well, who did it then?" Once again she searched the bathroom for a culprit, the wheels spinning in her head, and finally blurted out, "Dorian!" FYI folks, Dorian is her cousin and lives in Savannah, Georgia. It was her first lie! We were so proud. We had been told by other parents that lying is a big milestone for a child's development and apparently science has proved it (see links below). Listen, we know it's not rocket science, but these are the ways in which our child amazes us and keeps us in the present moment.
