Today, Jakob had soccer, then his wood shop class, Sarah and I had some time to spend together, and in that time I think she asked about Jakob or "Jabub" at least 5 times. We sat and watched him play soccer, "When he be done?", "Go Jakob, Go Jakob, HAHAHAHA!" She really thought yelling at him was funny. Then when we dropped him off at his wood shop class she asked a few more times about when we could get him, I annoyingly told her "We'll get him in 1 hour, remember he's just inside that building.", "Ok Mama".
While Jakob was at his class, I walked with Sarah to the resale shop to see what kind of treasures we could find, of course we found lots of great dress up stuff (don't have any pics yet), a pretty purple princess dress, bright pink ballet/princess shoes, a new princess nightgown and some bedazzled shoes that her Daddy won't touch.
Anyhow, Sarah was quick to tell Jakob about her new things, he was a bit jealous but remembered that he just got a huge bin of dinosaurs from the same shop on Monday (like we needed more dinosaurs - "Mom these ones are small and have some trees with them").
We hadn't even made it to the front door when Sarah begged for her new dress, she wanted it on and apparently didn't want to get out of it for the rest of her life! Well, after her nap (yep she slept in the dress), she threw a fit when I told her she couldn't wear it to the park - she would ruin it - serious screaming and crying going on. Big brother to the rescue - Jakob stepped in and gave her a big hug, held her tight and said, "Sarah it's ok, I know you want to wear that dress, but you don't want to ruin it, right?"
I about died! So darling. Of course she understood then and off we went.
This is what big brothers are for, now I understand why we have 2 kids!
