I know I shouldn’t be, but sometimes I am amazed at how different our kids are. Take today, for instance. One child spent the entire day reading and playing quietly in her room. Another child followed us around, asking us to play Legos with him, read with him, play a game with him, watch a movie with him, etc. The third child was somewhat self-sufficient, though he was a bit like a tornado, causing mayhem and destruction wherever he went.

Truth be told, sometimes I wish they could all be like the one who can sit and read all day. But, then I wouldn’t get so much snuggle time with the 5-year old and I wouldn’t be constantly amazed and entertained by the 2-year old and his industriousness.
