So Nice To Notice! SOLS 7

My girls are each three and a half years apart, making my oldest and youngest seven years apart.  Right now I have one in high school, one in middle school, and a third grader.  Needless to say, life can be interesting at any given moment on any given day.  My middle school daughter, A and my third grader B have been very close but I knew this year with them in different schools and with different stages of growing up there would be some bumps in the road.  It's hard to watch each of them figure this out in their own way and I find myself wondering how can we get back to easier days for them to be together.

Tonight I stepped out for a boot camp session at the Y with a personal trainer in a small group.  I'm sure this will be a slice of life at some point.  While I was gone A and B found each other again.  How did I know?  I noticed.  I noticed after showering, they had the same hairstyle.  A wet up-do with one single pony tail holder.  There was a third grade measurement scavenger hunt completed but written in A's handwriting.  There must of been teamwork for that.  B is our first daughter to share a talent in the school talent show and A was watching and coaching a practice session from the couch.  Then B went upstairs to get ready for bed.  I went up to join her to continue reading The Borrowers to find them snuggled together in bed having A read to her The Lightening Thief.  I asked for my read aloud time and I got a small speech on why not with giggles and smiles.  Thank you girls for finding each other and enjoying sisterhood.


  1. Savor it. It sounds like a perfectly lovely evening.


  2. Posts like this are lovely. I have 2 daughters just 2 years apart, and you've never met any two so different.
    Great that your girls found some common ground!
