Can I tell you the sweetest story?
So it was Quinn’s birthday, and we celebrated just our little family of four, and Nathan and I went way overboard with presents, because that’s how we are . . . and the following day we were having family over to celebrate.
We were driving around in the car the day before, and talking about the next day, with everyone coming.
All the sudden Gavin says, “Tomorrow everyone is going to bring gifts for Quinn?” And I told him yes, thinking he was probably wondering, in typical the world revolves around me five year old fashion, if there would be anything for him.
As I told him, yes, that people would be bringing gifts for his sister the following day, I looked in the back seat, and Gavin was crying. (Oh boy, this desire for gifts is getting seriously out of control. Tears? Tears?!?!)
I asked Gavin what was going on, why he was crying, and he said
“Well, it’s just that everyone is going to have something for Quinny tomorrow . . . except for me!”
Not only was I totally wrong about my kiddo (#momfail), he was being the sweetest ever. I so often underestimate my kids, and this was one of those moments. I underestimated his love for her and their relationship and how important it is.
The next morning I took Gavin shopping before everyone came over, and lo and behold he picked out the absolute best gift for his little sister. Like all the other gifts immediately got put to the side so that she could play with the dog shaped guitar that her big brother got for her.
I hope it is something that I never ever forget about Gavin.
