Better Than Sliced Bread

My sister Holly gave birth to a little boy today. Dawson Luke Ward--7.14 pounds and 21 inches long. Both Holly and Dawson are healthy and happy.

I have the privilege of watching her two little girls during this time. This morning a neighbor asked the girls how they were doing. Four-year-old Ella responded:

ELLA: This is a very special and different day for me.
NEIGHBOR: Oh? Why's that?
ELLA: I get to stay with Mandy.

That's right, Ella. Score one for Aunt Mandy.

Was that Mom and Dad's doing or yours?

Wow... more special than a baby brother! You rank Mandy!
