Cute short story...
Steve often does this little thing with the kids. He'll say at dinner...
"Raise you hands if you want some cookies?"
and the whole crew raises their hands high and says "ME!"
"Raise your hands if you love your Mommy"
and the whole crew raises their hands high and says "ME""
"Raise you hands if you want to".... every time it's something different.
Last night, as it does often, China was mentioned in a conversation and sort of quietly Grace says "I from China".
Steve says "Raise you hand if you are from China"
Grace practically jumps out of her chair, stretches her hand as high as it will go and most assuredly and proudly says
"MEEEE!!!!! I FROM CHINA!"
and then she says
"Not Braden, Not Kailey, Not Devin, JUUUUSSTTTT ME!"
