I’m so proud.

At our church on Sundays, the teenage girls meet together, and as a rule, I’m not there. Because I’m not a teenage girl, and I don’t have an assignment with them. But yesterday, my brilliant friend Macy (remember her?) came to present a talk to the girls. So I went, too. And as they girls were starting their meeting, they were asked, “Does anyone have any great news to share?” And my Kid 2 raised her hand and said, “My sister won Region Drama best actress, won first place in dramatic monologue, and her one-act play took first place.” And then my Kid 1 raised her hand and said, “Oh, yeah? Well my sister got superior ratings at her violin federation yesterday.”

That’s the kind of bragging I can get behind.


  1. Aw, I love moments like that. Your girls sound wonderful.

  2. Someone’s doing something right at Chez Wilhite.

  3. There is something very heart warming about one sib bragging up another. 😉

  4. So as the grandparents head out the door to the day’s mission assignment, they do so with a whee/tear in the voice. For parenting, as well as magnified talents.

  6. That is the cutest (and most tear-jerking) thing I’ve ever heard! Your girls are supporting each other? Wow. My sisters and I fought like wet cats in a burlap sack. You *should* be proud! What good girls!
