The Third Child

There is just something about the third child.

I hear they rule the roost usually. And are often little stinkers. Both true for this one.

Right now he’s two years old. The third boy.

The boss.

He loves Nerf Guns, monster trucks, and Blaze and the Monster Machine.

He has the most pleasant personality of anyone I have ever met.

He adores his brothers. He drives both of them bonkers too. Without fear.

He lives on chocolate. I kid. But for real, he loves snacks and treats and raspberries. Getting him to eat a meal is hard.

He loves getting his haircut.

He talks like he’s 12.

He can make a mess out of anything.

He exhausts me in a way the other two don’t. The word feral comes to mind.

He is such a mama’s boy. He’s excited to share a room with baby sister.

He grew up overnight. In a way he was never a baby.

And he healed our family. He arrived and became the bridge between Cooper and Sawyer.

I want him to stay little forever.

He nailed his haircut tonight. Not one word during the whole thing.

And after…’mama, it’s Nerf gun time now.’
