Middle child, Parental syndrome.

I realized this morning, whilst speaking of the thoroughly engaging career choice of stay at home parent, that I mention my 13 year old son a lot, and I mention my 2 year old son a lot, but I don't often mention my 8 year old son.

Did you know I had an 8 year old son? I do! He's awesome.

(Oh, you read my birth stories and you do? Good!)

My middle boy is just so laid back that with all the frustration of a high drama teenager and all the constant chasing of a sprited toddler, he's sort of left to his own little laid back devices. Alec is such a sweet little boy. He's always been able to entertain himself...and I take this for granted way way way too much.

What, me worry?

I musn't let him slip through the parental cracks or else he'll be dressing like Marilyn Manson at age 12, writing badly rhymed depressing poetry and worshipping household appliances. He'll shave off all his body hair and leave it in the tub for me to clean up.

Alec, this post is dedicated to you. You're just that great and don't think I don't notice. Let's make rootbeer floats later.

...and we'll toast our floats with the wish that life never become a Morrissey song.


  1. It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blog is also so cool! Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer. I'm only searching for a public that may like or love what I write.

    Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together.

    I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity. Remenber that pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!

  2. Becky! I found your blog after searching for it through yahoo 360. I was shocked when I read that your baby is already 2 years old!! I still remember when he was born! I will be reading you. Hugs

  3. My middle girl? Too loud and passionate to ever be glossed over. Ever.
