And in the interest of fairness (and because he's so darn cute!) here's a picture of my 22 year old, more than 21 years ago, as a little 3 month old. (I was younger, too, then.) Isn't he cute!
One thing we had to be alert to in our family as our kids were growing up was "fairness."
Often, with our 3, we'd say, "We're not trying to make it 'fair.' We'll give you what you need." But they'd argue "fairness." It's said that sibling rivalry is actually quite good for kids, especially girls; it helps them learn to argue and stand up for themselves, to look out for themselves, as well as others. Yeah. Great for kids. Horrendous for parents!
Which is why Doug and I are going to be buried with our chandelier. Our GLASS chandelier! (I'll post a photo of it someday.)
Our kids insisted it was jewels of some sort. And would argue shamelessly over dinner who'd get it when we died! (tactful, huh?) Finally, Doug and I had enough, and LITERALLY WROTE IT INTO OUR WILLS that we'll be buried with our chandelier.
They found something else to argue about.
