Honestly, I am not sure what to tell you this morning. You want to hear how difficult it is to get Large up in the mornings? That my boys have taken up mooing to protest their chores or schoolwork?
Oh I know, how about me running like a frightened school girl (squealing as well) away from the two large Tom Turkeys?
We did lose a sheep to the cold. And I found blood on Murial's ear, looks like a dog bite. We do have untrained Hanging tree dogs running the neighborhood. I have been worried about them biting the ankles of my girls, forgot about the ears.
What about Small getting bullied at school? The teachers are all over it now that they know it is going on. Small is so concern about getting into trouble with his teacher that he doesn't say anything when it happens. And I know Small can take the boy. He fist-a-cuffs with Large (7yr old vs 13 yr old) and tends to win. Small is built like a Boxing Irishman, and isn't scared of a bit of rough and tumble, but he knows he shouldn't hit others. So saves it for his brothers. Will need to work on it's ok to defend yourself.
Medium is at a don't want to, don' care to, no matter the groundings or anything else stage. Nope ain't going to happen.
You want to hear my thoughts on raising children?
No, good because I didn't want to hear it either.
I did get a phone call from the grandfather of one of Medium and Small's friends. He wanted to tell me how polite and well mannered my boys were. And what a delight it was to have them visit. My jaw dropped. They are little hellions when they are home. But it does tell me that I am raising them right, somewhere along the way. It also tells me, that other parents in the area are raising their kids a bit differently.
Working on a few projects of my own, but think I will tell you about those when they are finished.
