A little mommy

Melody, as our little girl, is the nurturer out of the three.

While she sometimes tries to take care her brothers, they are often not receptive (read: the older one tries to boss her around and the youngest tries to run away). She will then turn to her dolls and pretend to be their mommy.

Until lately.

She has discovered that Luke loves her pampering.

The other day, I found this

Melody, worried that Luke was cold, had covered him in her bathrobe.

Later on, she thought he needed some toys to play with and set out her box of princesses for him.

I think he really appreciated the gesture.


So far, she's a very good mommy-in-training!

So cute! Boys really don't have that mothering thing down nearly as good as the girls! My boys are just plain bossy with each other.
