I keep the church nursery often on Wednesdays and a few weeks ago, we were in one of those situations where one kid would cry and cause other babies to start crying. Needless to say, all of the volunteers arms were full with babies! Karsten was perfectly fine and playing with toys until she turned around and saw me holding one of the younger babies. And then, it was over.
She kept saying "Put dat baby down! Don't hold her! That's my mommy!"
Of course you can tell that I obviously thought it was funny and grabbed my phone to snap a few pictures.
This is yet another example of how God makes each kid so uniquely different. Kate was so NOT a mama's girl. She was so independent, she would have rather had somebody else besides me in the nursery in the first place. Not Karsten. She loves her Mama in a clingy sort of way. And I kinda like it. :) At least for now.
