The Softer Side of Swee’Pea

Since Swee’Pea has hit toddlerhood, I might have suggested once a couple many times that our little Swee’Pea has a little… how should I say this?… spunk.

Yes, she’ll throw a major-league tantrum just because she wants to remind you that she can and that she will make your life miserable at any time. Yes, she’s been known to smack around her brother (or any boy, for that matter) like he was her red-headed step child. Yes, she’ll tell a lie to cover her butt faster than any two-year-old should be able to do.

But just when I think I’ll have to request a prescription for happy pills, Swee’Pea has a moment that makes my heart melt. Words cannot describe it so I present the evidence that my little girl can be a tender, sweet, nurturing little girl.




But don’t get too weepy. Ten minutes later she was dragging that baby around by its foot.


  1. Speaking from experience; wait until she starts whacking TheMonk upside the head with the doll… or you and the missus.

  2. Ane is quite fond of her dolly – and her brother knows it. He’s not above grabbing it, waving it in front of her face, and then running like hell away from her while she screams bloody murder and chases him. The last time he did that, she was on the potty and couldn’t chase him.

    Swee’Pea looks adorable with her dolly! Has she tried breast-feeding it yet? ;)

  3. aaaaccccccckkkkkk! it’s lucy! the doll that my grandmother gave to foo. does she creep out every guest to your home, that doll that the pea is dragging about? foo likes to run her head under the rocking horse then nurse her back to health. and the clothes are looooong gone.

    beautiful babies, you make, my friend.
