Do you have a favorite kid? Heather does!
Meet Heather from “View from the Shoe”! Heather is pretty awesome, for one thing she has 5 kids. I gotta love a mom with that many, I’m the oldest of five, so I know she’s a pretty special (and tired) lady! And she freaking does triathlons-I mean seriously, I have ZERO excuses for not exercising…. You must read her post about her son getting his learner’s permit! Pretty funny!
Without further ado….. I give you Heather!
First things first. I am relatively new to blogging. I think I started in April. I still feel like I am getting the hang of things and meeting new people. My must read blog every day is Because Nice Matters. Noelle is so sweet and her stories about her life and family are amusing. I like to read blogs that are not angry or negative and hers is definitely not. I always remind myself to write while I am in a writing mood then I have things to edit and post when my day his hectic. And finally here is one of my own favorite posts I Wonâ€™t Play Putt Putt â€“ You Canâ€™t Make Me.
Of course I caught writerâ€™s block as soon as Kate told me I could be featured, but I finally got some inspiration from the late Erma Bombeck.
From time to time you ask me who is â€my favoriteâ€. If I am alone with youâ€¦.then you are! But the truth is I have a favorite.
Ty â€“ You are my favorite because you are the first. Everything you do is new and exciting. You have put up with the most diligent and overprotective parents in the world. You have been pushed, sometimes subtly and sometimes forcibly, to do what we think you should be doing, and you have done it with a dimply smile. You are sometimes the â€œthird parentâ€ at our house. I love you the most for your helpfulness â€“ you are the only one in the family who can reach the top shelf!
Tanner â€“ You are my favorite because you are the peace-keeping middle child. You have carved out a niche for yourself by doing everything crazier and funnier than your brother before you. Thanks for not letting things get old. You are my favorite because have the least drama out of the kids. You are stable and even. I love you because you always try to sit your freckle face next to me on the couchâ€¦even if there is only an inch of space.
Saige â€“ You are my favorite because you were the only girl for seven years. You are my ally. You are my dance partner during Dancing With the Stars and you keep me company when everyone else is watching football. You are the â€œLittle Mommaâ€. You are always willing to help. You went from being the youngest and only girl to the middlest sister with a deceiving grace. I know it has not been as easy as you make it seem.
Tayte â€“ You are my favorite because you represent a fresh start. You are a delight to be enjoyed after the chaos of three kids in five years. The six year gap between you and your older siblings gave me a second chance to enjoy you armed with the knowledge of how quickly time passes. You are the sweetest and most compliant child I have ever met. I love you the most because you have red hair.
Shaye Baby â€“ You are my favorite because you are an indulgence. I can laugh at your antics because I know it wonâ€™t â€œruinâ€ you. I love the way you march around the house as if you are just as big as your siblings. There is a mischievous twinkle in your eye. You will keep me young. I love you the most because you will still be here when all the others have left to go to college and start their own families.
So there you have it. I have a favorite. Do you?
