It went down like this; Austin said some MEAN things about his sister because he didn't want to read her a story. I took a deep breath, focused myself, and told him Jesus wouldn't have treated you like that. He replied with "yes he would". I said, "No, sir. He would love you, because you are special". He tried to tell me that Natalie had done some really bad things and I retorted with "well so have you". Austin told me how he really never like Natalie, ever since she was a baby, and so on. I kept my cool and calmly excused Austin for bed time. Early.
About a half an hour later, he came down the stairs, crying, with crocodile tears running down his face. He apologized to Natalie, giving her a HUGE hug. Now THAT'S how it should be. I was SO HAPPY to see this happen.
Now, I know it's not always going to be like that, but I will savor this moment. I know he's capable of doing it, and so am I. <3
