Still More Coolness

Gabrielle

Today I'm going to do something I don't do often enough: sing the praises of my middle child, Gabrielle.

Since I started school and Jeff was working nights, Gab has been taking care of Nina while I'm at school and Jeff is sleeping. We've been paying her, because I think taking care of siblings is out of the chore range, but not nearly as much as we'd be paying someone else. She's quite cheerful about how much she makes, but more importantly, she's doing a great job. She changes diapers, feeds Nina, plays with her and generally holds it down while Jeff and I are taking care of other things. She knows Jeff is right upstairs if something really bad goes down and that I'm a cell phone call away for any not-so-urgent questions. She doesn't overuse either option and has been very responsible for Miss Nina.

Today she helped me clean house because we're having company tonight and didn't complain once. We even made cookies in between chores. I've been carefully increasing her responsibility this summer and she has totally risen to the challenge. I'm so proud of her.
