Quirks

I was sitting today thinking about all the funny quirky things my kids do. Each is what makes them different an unique. I embrace each one as the individual that they are. The love they exude is just amazing.  I know I talk a lot about H but really all my children are of course so very special to me and my life would not be complete.

Not long ago I was accused of favoring H and abandoning my others. I shouldn't have taken those rude things to heart because I know along with my family it is not the case. I have such an amazing support system they would stand by me and help me if I was falling.

Every little thing my kids do make them special and stand out. Sean loves to keep us laughing. Just recently he decided to speak in a English accent. He did it so perfectly.He is innovative and creative. I swear he will be an engineer or something along those lines one day.  He is so smart and insightful. I know he has his moments but still they are moments that one day I will look back on and surly miss! Hannah is a pleaser and is very hard on herself. She has worked very hard these last few years to overcome a lot of obstacles and refuses to back down. While we know she is embarking on those pre teen years I know that her love and nurture will always be there. She is the little mom of our family. She looks after Emily, Daniel and H. Her maturity when it comes to them is just amazing. Ella is our drama queen. She lives up to the stereo type of being a "red head"! She is hardheaded and full fight. She was my baby for a long time and still lives of to the role of youngest but also totally fits the part of middle child. No one will ever take advantage of her because they will be afraid of her wrath lol!!

I love how completely different my kids are. They bring so much to this family that I am proud of. They have accepted their little brother as one of their own despite is many needs. Our family has raised some good kids some accepting kids at that. They make us proud every day.

I guess I should add some new and funny quirks I have noticed with H. He now hate the National Anthem and will dissolve into a puddle once he hears it! He can spout out several phrases now whether or not they apply to a given situation does not matter to me he still is saying them! Tonight he wanted to eat on the couch after 10 minutes of fighting and food throwing he walked back from the kitchen placed his food on the table and climbed up on the couch. He has to learn the hard way! If that means breaking a lamp and almost clearing my Scentsy warmer off the end table so be it! For the things that he has lost the ability to do he has gained new things.

These are the moments that make me miss my kids the most. I know though one day we are going to be in one city and under one roof.
