Yesterday my Sammy got a J O B!!! He will be working at East Side Marios. He is quite excited about this and I am glad for his excitement. He will be able to pay for his cell phone bill and buy his clothes that cost way too much! 🙂
Tyler’s pushing feels very different from Sammy’s. Sigh. God doesn’t give you more than you can handle, right?
Meanwhile, I have a balancing act going on with my middle children. Well, Max… he is such a great kid. I think he has a hard place in our family’s birth order. He is big yet he is still little. Usually, I refer to the boys as the older 3 and younger 3. He isn’t fond of that. Yet, in so many ways, he is one little guy. Fairness is so important to my Max. “How come HE gets to do that again?” Usually he is referring to something the younger ones will be allowed to do.
Josh has a habit of finding his way to lay right beside me. It doesn’t matter who is there, he will squish in a spot that isn’t a spot. Usually his brother cave and just move over. Not Max. Or for example, if one of the boys is sleeping in our bed, Max keeps track of how many times his brothers have slept there. Usually he will walk off in a huff, totally offended of the injustice he per-sees. I will have to go after him, realizing he is hurt and kiss the unfairness better and act accordingly.
With Zach having his appendix out, he has been given treats by many friends. The first time it was OK. Zach was too sick to enjoy it and handed them out to his brothers. After a bit thought, as the treats kept coming and Zach wasn’t being so generous, Max was not impressed. We went to the store and I let him/them pick whatever candy and size they wanted. (Trust me, this does not happen… especially the big bags). This was justice prevailing.
My Max is still a little boy needing his mama’s attention, just in bigger boys ways. 🙂 I’ll take it! Yet it is a job remember that he is a little one in a big boy’s body. I love this kid.
Then there is Jordan, who is, day by day, becoming a copycat of Sanj. He is more of a loner at home. He will be off, usually on his guitar, strumming to his own tune. Often, he will wait till all his brothers are out of the pool and then go in. He is becoming a true musician… a little off beat. lol
Zach is healing wonderfully. He is itching to be active again. It is hard to believe that it was only 7 days ago that he was cut open!
OK… that is the scoop of the home front. I am back to writing and it feels good. I am a still suffering a bit of writers block but am not going to let that stop me.
