I would like to introduce you to four incredible boys. Each one stole my heart and I have no problem being called a pushover when it comes to them. I’ll tell anyone I’m busy, I have so much to do, I can’t! But if one of the boys asks me to go for a walk or for a sleepover, chances are, it’s a yes.
I was pretty lucky to be able to stand next to my sister during 3 of 4 of her boys’ births. I lived in Newfoundland during Sawyer’s birth but came home within a week or so of him being born. I remember holding each one of them in my arms. So tiny and shrivelled up like old men. I had no idea that I would later worry about them as if they were my own.
I was watching Grey’s Anatomy one day and a girl started talking about her niece and nephew, “I love them like, if something happened to them, I would die. My heart is so wide open, and they’re so fragile,” She went on to ask how their mom deals with it. I’ve been there so many times. As they cry in pain, frustration, anger, etc. I want to just hug them and make everything go away! How do parents deal with this?
Each of them have sleep overs but we always do different things. Gene wants to make things, Lukas wants to talk and ask questions, William is all about food and video games and Sawyer, well, currently he just runs around playing with and touching everything.
These little men are the loves of my life. Together they are a hand full that I am not always prepared for but in smaller numbers I’m ready! I honestly wouldn’t know what to do if something happened to one of them. But I’ll just continue to pray that nothing does.
