It was a slow summer day with not much planned. Brixton was at preschool and Unity and I were trying to figure out what to do with ourselves. We went out to run some errands and I decided that we could get pedicures as a treat. Unity was over the moon of course.
We had a great time and Unity even got some extra flowers on her toe as a surprise. When Brixton came home, Unity wanted to recreate the experience for him since he'd missed it. So, she got a bowl and a towel and gave him a pedicure, complete with soak and massage.
You know, sometimes they fight so much. Sometimes I can't even think with the bickering and the long hot days and it just feels like it will never end and Chris will never come home from work and I will be in this house that is 85 degrees despite all the fans and they will be yelling at each other forever.
But then. This pure sweetness will happen, this moment of wanting to share joy and do something for a sibling and really, it makes it all worth it.
