The Manny!

Harrison "nursing" Myla after she fell off the swing set (notice ice pack behind her head!)
Harrison teaching Myla the fine art of Nintendo DS!

Harrison has been coming to work with me the past two days and I have to say, he's been amazing! What a great help he's been - entertaining the kids, putting them down for naps, nursing their wounds, giving hugs and encouragement - I tell you, he's a natural with kids (I have no idea where he gets that!) :)
Anyway, I told him he's going to be a great babysitter one of these days. He is so gentle and sweet with Dakota, who has special needs, and he has some sort of magic that gets her to talk a LOT! She doesn't have too many words, but Harrison seems to get them out of her and then some. He had her saying the funniest things on the swingset. And he just adores Myla. He insists he's her new best friend and that she "likes him best". Both girls totally accepted him putting them down for naps and Myla even let him hold an ice pack on her head after she fell off the swings. It was sweet to see what a loving little guy he's turned out to be and how amazing he is with little kids. Oh! And he cleaned up the house, stacking and sorting everything and even dusted. He's going to make a great husband someday! :)

That is so sweet that he loves those little girls so much. It's good he can care for others as he's been cared for all these years! Compliments to the person who taught him to be so caring and loving! So Sweet....give him a hug and "love" from Mimi and Papa! :)
