Opposite


Caleb has always been a delight. Conception took almost 2 years (vs 2 MINUTES for Matthew, sorry if TMI!), I spent 10 weeks total on bed rest with my pregnancy. He was forced out 5 weeks early and all he wanted to do was sleep....this poses a problem when he needed to be awake to eat, so he could grow, ya know?

Now that he is seven, seems that the minute you get him pegged to something, he goes the other way. He and Matthew go to separate schools now, so they don't see each other between the hours of 8-4. That's been harder for Caleb to adjust to, as you can imagine.....

He begs Matthew to play with him. Sometimes Matthew is more than accommodating, sometimes less so. My last WW post was because Caleb wants to spend every minute he has after school with Matthew.

So, you should have seen the look on Matthew's face when about 30 minutes before Caleb's bedtime, he says "Hey, you wanna go upstairs and play until you have to go to bed?" "Nah, I don't feel like it..."

Priceless. You think you know a guy.....

Isn't it amazing how different two boys from the very same parents can be?
