Sometimes they can be so good

Published on: Apr 18 2010 by DaddyCast

Recently we received my oldest son’s writing samples- various snippets that he has put together over the past month or so.  One really stood out to us, both my wife and I found it amazing and precious at the same time.  The topic was change and he wrote the following:

There was an experience of change with me when I got a brother.  That means I always have company.  I have so much fun with him.  He is my best friend.  We are mean to each other sometimes.  We never get in trouble.  So when I got a brother things really changed.  I like that things really changed a lot.

I think this can be listed as a definition of brotherhood, especially the “mean … sometimes” part.  And now it is documented for all time, although I will save reminding him of it until absolutely needed.  Perhaps when one of them is speaking at the other’s wedding we can pull it out.

    Hello!

    I’m the editor for an online education blog (http://www.onlinecollegeguru.com/) and we’ve recently put together a list reasons why teachers and parents are alike.

    If you have some time, could you come read our article and if you like it, could you give us a plug on your website?

    Here’s the post: http://blog.onlinecollegeguru.com/education/50-ways-teachers-and-parents-are-alike-2/

    PS,

    Hi,

    Catching a cold from your sick child is part of the parenting, but there are a couple things you could do to lessen the probability of it happening. We’ve recently constructed a list of 25 ways you can keep your kids from making you sick: http://crnaschools.org/25-ways-to-keep-your-kids-from-making-you-sick/.

    If you have some time, could you read our article? Being nurses as well as parents, we believe these tips will be very helpful when the next cold season comes. If you like it, can you blog about it?

    Thank You,

    Christina
