I would like to step away for a few minutes of my constant gussing and chest thumping about my oldest child and do a small post concerning my other two boys. For those of you who do not read my other blog that contains every day moments and scrapbook layouts, (yes I am one of those scrapbookers you hear about) I have two other boys, Kyle is 16 and Devin is 10.
Each of my boys are talented in their own way and I am a mother that loves to brag about this.
Kyle is 16, he is our 104lb (if he is lucky and wet) comic of the family, this child marches to his own drum and since he is on the High School drum line it is his drum and a very heavy drum at that, especially if you weigh close to nothing. Who at this moment is enjoying the oppurtunity to be the oldest child at home. Don't get me wrong he loves and misses Chris but when you have been tortured by someone for 16 years you take every chance thrown at you to be in charge.
You never know exactly what is going to come out of this childs mouth and sensorship is somethig that we have to exercise at times. LOL
Devin is 10, he knows everything and considering the fact that the childs IQ was measured somewhere around 117 - 12o when he was 7, I really mean he knows everything. He is our baseball star. He plays catcher for his little league team and works with a catcher trainer once a week. He is catching 90 mph fast balls off of college pitchers and "knows" that he will one day be the starting catcher for the New York Yankees.
The reason I bring all of this up is they have started their own blog about having a big brother in the Army and will have full reign over it. I will only be a silent partner in this adventure and will try my best not to inject my opinions, sensorship or feelings on what they are writing. After all I know what I am going thru but only they know what they are going thru.
Please make note of the fact that they both idolize their older brother, no matter how much he tortured them, road rough shod over them or just ignored them at times, he is their world and they are dealing with him being gone each in their own way.
So in closing, if you would like to drop by and leave them a little love, please feel free to do so.
