Rainy Day Bruddahs #1 and 2
Crazy rain these last two days in Hawai’i. Jake hasn’t been able to get any playground time in at school. I’m sure this is worse for his teachers Jeff and Sally than it is for him. He’s told me that he’s totally OK with staying inside. I have a plan to take him to the baseball game on Thursday; I hope it clears up.
When I look back at the posts I was making for the Jakes back when he was Wezmies’ age I realize that I’m definitely giving him the short end of the blog-stick. He deserves more coverage, and it’s not just limited to the blog: I take less pix of him, I read less to him than I did to Jake, and I spend less time steering him down the correct path. To my mind, the last one is the key. When I look back I was uber-concerned with Jake’s overall behavior and sleep schedule. Actually, I think I still am. It’s a very basic reason: he is our first so he’s the one who will get the most concerned focus when it comes to new issues and stages. Most of the time we don’t know how to deal with new stages. We’re fearful that we’re doing it the wrong way so we overcompensate. With the Nez we’ve been through it and feel very confident that he’s doing just fine. There is, however, absolutely no excuse for not taking more pix of him.
