When Charlie went off to first grade, one of the things that I worried about was the relationship between the boys. They are a a little over two years a part and for the most part have done everything together, and that is the way they like it. Yes, one minute they can be throwing each other down on the floor or trying to decapitate each other with their fierce pillow fights. But I think that is how they show each other their "love" if you will. Because the other will be the first to stand up to a rude friend it he doesn't allow all brothers to play in their game, and they run to each other's rescue over big tumbles and scrapes.
There are tender moments too between brothers. Whether they are snuggled up watching a show together, loving on their sister together or playing their favorite Lego Star Wars Wii game. These two love to spend time together. So, my worries of if these two would remain best friends was proven to not be a worry at all when on the second day of school Charlie came bounding in the house with two new library books in hand. A Clifford Kitten book for himself and a Clifford "mimi" fire truck book for his brother. Charlie went on to tell me how he had been thinking of his brother and how he just knew that Tommy would love a "mimi" book.
Life seems to be flying by, especially since having the guys! Everyday they say or do something that just tugs at our heart, amazes us or even brings us(me) to tears! We want to remember it all!! We want to remember all the fun we had, all the messy fingers, and yes, even the hard times! God has truly blessed us with a wonderful family, amazing children, and each other! How grateful are we!? So here goes trying "remember"!
