Did you know I have FOUR boys... yeah... really! I know I don't talk about them much... it's all girls girls girls but they are most definitely here and my oh my do I love them so!
My dear first born... I am a first born... it can be hard. To always be the one who "should know better" and "be a good example". It's definitely a hard place to be... although one could say that the middle child, baby or anywhere in between is a hard place to be for it's own set of reasons.
Anyway what I was getting at is how blessed I am to have my wonderful Grayson be our first born. He is INCREDIBLY responsible, level headed, street smart, strong, helpful, caring, loving, thoughtful, and so much more!
I just spent the last few days watching this boy dote on his sisters, take care of them when I couldn't, put Ozzie back in bed for his nap while I was feeding the girls, give Ozzie numerous piggy back rides, read all of his brothers books, lead his brothers into cleaning the kitchen, make eggs and grapefruit for breakfast, cut up red peppers and carrots for a snack for himself and his brothers, make his bed perfectly, help Ozzie brush his teeth, help Ozzie pee on the potty when I was feeding the girls, put his laundry away, help his brothers get their snow gear on, watch out for his brothers outside, take the dog out numerous times, vacuum his room, help his brother with homework...
and that's just what came to me without really thinking of all that he's done.
He truly is amazing and a blessing to us all!
I had to put this is writing... because he deserves it! Boy oh boy do I LOVE this boy!
