Little sister inched closer to the water and with every step, big sister called out a word of caution to warn her not to get too close, acting as any good (third) parent would do. Little sister wasn’t too worried, though, she was just exercising her independence as any 1-year-old would. The two girls followed each other around the park, in awe of the dozen dogs that were out for their morning playtime. Little sister’s eyes had a way of catching the light just so. And, just as big sister was taking a break on a bench, unbeknownst to her, one single leaf fell silently above her head.
Shilpa and Jim, thanks so much for sharing your morning with me. Your girls are precious!
