While we were preparing dinner, Elliana was in the living room with my mom. They were coloring and having a heart-to-heart about some of the changes in our lives this year. My mom commented on how it must be hard, sometimes, alluding to the challenge of having two baby sisters. Elliana's response was:
"It's tough to live here sometimes. We have some real characters around here."
As she said that, she rolled her eyes in our direction. Apparently, she's been putting up with us.
