love and brothers

A few weeks ago, my daughter was at a friend’s house {i swear i never see that girl on weekends anymore}, so it was just me and the boys. I came walking out of my room and there was Bridger, racing out of Averie’s room. He had that crap-i’ve-been-caught look all over his face, so I asked him what he was doing in his sister’s room. {looking for BeastQuest books} Right, because every 11-year-old girl has a bookshelf of BeastQuest books. I have been a mother for many, many years now and I knew exactly what he was doing. {looking for her diary}

I questioned him and he admitted that yes, he was searching for the sister’s coveted diary. He couldn’t even look at me, he was so mortified that he had been caught. We {I} discussed the little lie he had chosen to tell and by this time the tears were falling. I kept it short and went on my merry way, and Bridger ran off to his room.

Later on, Ashton was trying to find Bridger, and he didn’t appear to be in their room. {he was, but went to his feeling-bad spot, under the bed} I went upstairs to check on them, and found this:

i love you

{to Bridger, from Ashton}
