This year, Harlo got the “Honest Abe” award at school.
This did not surprise me one bit. Did I ever tell you about that time I walked in to wake the girls up from school, but they were already awake and looked like a deer in the headlights? I asked calmly, “Are you guys eating candy?” and Harlo immediately burst into tears, admitting that she had given her sisters candy. I could hardly console her through my giggles.
Or the time I took the baby to the doctor, and she text me from home saying “I’m sorry mom but… I made a bad choice. I used your makeup. I know it was wrong and I am sorry.” Precious girl couldn’t even wait the 5 minutes until I was home to break the news.
Harlo is the epitome of “painfully honest”. I love this about her so much – she has the purest little soul. I can always count on her for getting a straight story – even when she must tattle on herself to give it to me.
I’m sure lucky to have this little “honest abe”. <3
