Over the last year, Anne has become less of a sitter, and more of a great friend (We call her Auntie Anne now). We have found that we have so much in common, and it's brought us closer together (another reason for me to believe that God knew exactly what He was doing when he brought her into our life). She is one of the best Mom's I know, and has so much patience for her kids (she may not agree, but I see it). Best of all, Emma LOVES Anne and her Kami and Kadan, I mean, over the top, so excited to see them, LOVE. If I even mention their names, she smiles and starts to giggle. Anne and I joke that we would make great sister wives, because we think alike and our kids act like family anyways!
Well, since Emma is over there 3 full days a week, she learns a lot from Kami and Kadan. She's an only child (until baby #2 comes), but she has been raised as if she has siblings. She knows how to share, and how to play nice because of the relationship she has with Anne's sweet kids.
She also comes home, and does the funniest things--
...like walking on her hands and feet
and turning around and around in circles until she falls
oh, and I can't forget about driving her car around with accompanying sounds...
I surprisingly always wonder where she picks this stuff up, but then I have to laugh, and realize she is just watching her older friends and doing what they do. I have so much respect and love for the McRae's, and how they have raised their kids. Like me, Anne has been through a rough past, but she has come out shining as we all do when we embrace the light. She is always willing to help us, even if it means she has to give up doing the things she wants to do. It amazes me that God knew how much we needed each other, and how He saw the bigger picture. I can't imagine life without the McRae's!
Here are some videos of Emma doing what she's learned from her friends, enjoy!!
We ♥ the McRae's!!
