Tonight while waiting for Levi to finish soccer practice, Cairo kicked a ball around with Cameron and Klein. At one point Klein fell and needed comfort. I watched as Cairo carried her little brother up the hill, set him on my lap, pulled out the wet wipes and then placed them on a small scrape on Klein's leg. She lovingly cares for her brothers, but has mentioned she's tired of being the only sister in the family.
We all adore Cairo. She works to be good and is inherently kind and sensitive to others' needs. Like last Friday she was annoyed news coverage focused on the royal wedding instead of the tornado damage in Alabama. She reads to her brothers, tackles homework without complaint, responds immediately to anyone's request for help, likes multiple good night kisses, and often leaves sweet notes on our nightstands.
I wonder if Allegra would be the same.
