Abigail's kindness

For Abigail's night out with me, we went to the bookstore. A typical.activity for us. Unfortunately, the neighborhood Borders is shutting down. But there are still enough books that she could pick from. She found a Fancy Nancy story, where Nancy sacrifices her own wants to make her sister happy.

After reading the story, Abigail wanted to be like Nancy and do something nice for Collette. So, we bought he a fancy holographic cat & dog postcard. When we got home she wrote a note to Collette and gave her the postcard.

The note says:

Dear Collette,

I read a book like I am doing for you. I wanted to do this for you. I wanted to make you happy. You are being nice to me. So I am being nice to you. I hope you like this.

Your sister,

Abigail wrote the note independent of anyones help. She was pretty proud of that. All this goodwill spread as Collette allowed Abigail to help her read tonight - usually she prefers Mom or Dad to help her read.

Oh, and note Abigail lost her second front tooth. She knocked it out after chewing on pizza crust.
