Jessie has two children of her own, but this is her at our wedding. She was the flower girl.
There she was, not yet four, standing at the back of the shul. All those people in front of her. All this adult stuff going on.
My sister, ace child psychologist and motivational speaker, would have none of it.
“Go now or I’ll beat the *** out of you.”
Neither my sister or brother-in-law have ever raised a hand to Jessie. EVER! But desperate times call for desperate measures.
Jessie did her thing on schedule, was adorable and is part of our wedding’s greatest memories. All she needed was a little motivation.
