It's hard for him to be the youngest of the boys. It seems as though almost everything in his life has been a hand-me-down from clothes, toys, sports equipment and video games. He often has to sit waiting forever to have his turn, as his two big brothers continue to tell him just "one more minute".
I can understand how this makes him crazy. A good example of what he deals with is when he got his big brother's old bike because they'd outgrown it, then we got a new bigger bike for the boys and a new pink bike for his sister because she's a girl.
Tonight for his birthday, that's about to change though. My parents found a perfect bike, just his size. It's too small for his brothers and it's totally all "boy" so his sister will want nothing to do with it. It will be his very own, brand new bike...just for him.
I whole heartedly believe that siblings should learn to share and deal with turn taking, etc. Sometimes it's just nice to feel special and have something all your own though.
I'm so excited to see his reaction.
Happy Birthday Little Pret. We Love You and thank God everyday we get to watch you grow. Especially now that you're so much bigger...because you're seven. :)
