I took the four kids to the grocery store last night, before Paul came home from work. And, it was one of those nightmare trips. First, Nelson bent over the side of the cart and tipped it (I was able to keep it from falling completely over.) Then, Joshua got stuck in the seat of the cart somehow and screamed terribly loud. I could only calm him down by carrying him through the rest of the store. By this point, Lydia was exhausted, and could not walk any more. Since I had Joshua, I could not carry her... or set her in the cart seat. Rebecca came to the rescue (as usual). She picked up Lydia to carry her. I said, "Rebecca, you cannot carry Lydia, she is too big for you and you will be worn out." To which Rebecca replies, "But aren't we supposed to think of other people as more important than ourselves?"
I cried. I kissed her on the forehead. And, I let Rebecca carry Lydia. Rebecca never complained, and Lydia was content as well.
