OMG, there's hope?? Thank you, mama!! Actually...ds has 3 older half-sibs, and the two oldest are boys. His father used to tell me that the oldest one, who was SO mellow, was an uber-hard baby. And the 2nd one, who was hyper and generally ill-behaved, was the mellow baby. Glad to be reminded of that!
Happy birthday middle guy!
|Enjoying a reprieve from record temps here...it was actually cold the last few nights. But they are going back up tomorrow. Bummer. I really dislike summer. I love fall and spring and can tolerate winter, but summer, nope.
Oh, SO me too. I hate summer. The only good thing about summer is yummy veggies. Aside from that, it can go. I love Summer Solstice because it means the dark half of the year is now happening

It could. I don't have time to think about getting out there, myself, though. He does whine and complain-- so much so that it's not really worth it to ask for his help with anything. It's always
a struggle. Starts out with me asking nicely, and ends up with me ordering him, not so nicely, and taking things away (or threatening to) to make him comply.
He has regular chores. All that needs done in the yard right now is weed-eating (alRIGHT, whacking
) and he'd cut down the dang house if I let him loose with the weed eater.
Hmm. Food for thought, though. Maybe I can hire him out
