Sometimes i just need a tiny glimmer of hope

Micah can hardly ever get across anything he wants to say and when he does he's so frustrated it comes out sounding mean. On the way to school every morning he reacts really grumpy and rude when ever his sister breathes. And she likes to antagonize. But the other morning we started down the road and he calmly, clearly stated he has lost his stress baby doll. (I have no idea what he's talking about) the one anna gave me. She replied with genuine sympathy and asked if he wanted her to look for it in his room with him. OK. (What? He agreed to let someone in his room? And his sister! ?) It was cordial all the way to school. Felt like a dream in the way back home. Reality set in that afternoon. But for those moments. ..it was sweet!

Yep just those glimmers of hope make it better.  when i got up this morning, she ran up and gave me a big hug screaming happily "Mommy" but by brekfast she was screaming and wanted to hit her baby sister.  ; /

Those moments, while few and far between, are so great, aren't they?
