Yesterday was a tough day for Caroline. Who knows why...Cold and rainy? Lots of sibling rivalry because of Katherine's birthday? Excitement over Easter? The cause of her troubles remained a mystery but regardless, her behavior warranted a discussion. Rob spent some time talking to her about her decisions and how she could improve on them the next time.

At the end of their talk, Caroline looked at Rob and said, "So, even like now when I don't agree with you, someday when I'm a parent I will understand, right?"

I really couldn't make this stuff up...

Daddy's Girl

Caroline will never be a Daddy's girl. Don't get me wrong, she thinks Rob is the bees knees. But... when push comes to shove, it's all about Mom.

Katherine, on the other hand, is in love with her Daddy. He traveled a few weeks ago, and she cried herself to sleep calling, "Daddy, Daddy." When we found out he was coming home a day early, Katherine's first response was, "Now Daddy can give me a big hug."

And this morning, Katherine came down downstairs looking for Rob. When I told her he had gone to work, she began to cry. She then told me, "I always miss him."

Pretty cute, right?
