On our recent family vacation, there came a time when Isaac and I found ourselves alone on the beach.
So, I took this opportunity to have a little heart to heart with my little middle child.
“Isaac?”, I said, “Do you know that Mama loves you so much? And that you are my FAVORITE 3 year old?”
“And I love you and your brothers all the same?”
“Sometimes, I know that I hold Samuel a lot, or I am with Samuel a lot. But that is just because he is a baby and he can’t walk so I have to carry him around. And he needs me to rock him a lot in the chair because he still needs my milk, and he wont take a bottle. So if you ever feel sad that-“
“This rock right here looks just like a SPACESHIP! You think it can fly like a space ship?”
He throws it.
And suggests that we head back to the beach house.
I guess he is doing just fine.
