J & W

These two middle children of ours,

blue eyes, blonde hair,
Summer birthdays,
a love of reading
long legs.

And an ability
to push each others' buttons
until there are tears, tantrums,
punches thrown and hair pulled.

I'm hopeful maturity will iron out the creases,
strengthen the bonds and remind them just how similar they are.

In the meantime I'll continue to act as referee.


  1. Just enjoyed catching up with your posts - so cheering to see your hard-working healthy life unfolding as I sit here with flu in the rain! But losing your kids to boarding school is one thing I really don't envy you. It doesn't seem to do them any harm but it must make your heart ache.

  2. i suspect it will only get worse before it gets pleased to say that we haven't gotten quite to that stage yet, and they all argue with equal enjoyment, mostly with the middle child.

  3. love it! Kids will be kids and its good to see nothing has changed when it comes to brothers and sisters...speaking from experience of course!
