Yesterday I was talking to my sister and I expressed my frustration with Munchkin's recent behavior. She reminded me of how good Munchkin is with her daughter, who we affectionately call Shwinks.
Shwinks is the youngest member of our family and was a wonderful surprise for my sister who had pretty much resolved that kids weren't going to be a part of her life. Funny how when we make those decisions something usually happens to let us know life's taking us on the ride, not the other way around.
Munchkin is patient with Shwinks, even though she's 3 1/2 years younger and sometimes can't quite keep up with the bigger kids. It's a quality in Munchkin that we don't normally see around here as she often lacks patience with her own little brother.
Maybe there's hope for this kid, yet. Perhaps a career as a kindergarten teacher?
