Sometimes you get a brief glimpse of what will be…

This morning, my daughter A- (almost 7) and son G- (3 1/2) were sitting in the kitchen preparing to eat waffles for breakfast. In our house, rather than syrup, we tend to put a nut butter on the waffles, so this morning it was almond butter. Except A- couldn’t open the jar. She handed it to her brother and asked him to help out and… he opened it for her. A glimpse of the future, when they’re both big and she’ll borrow his strength. It might be a bit of biological programming, but it’s also a very nice future.
