Today I blurted out, "hey boys we have to measure you, yesterday was your due date!" Funny enough but I've never told the boys what a due date is. I explained it and they were very puzzled but also fascinated by this new tid-bit of information. I'm pretty sure it blew their minds when I said, "you really should just NOW be turning 8 years old!" So we measured and sure enough just like every year of their lives, they grew! The boys always have a growth spurt right around their due date.
These guys are doing really well, growing and developing as they should. I'm so grateful we have no issues with them what so ever and I pray it stays that way. The other day I got an impersonal email from their teacher, urging parents to please talk to our children about their behavior at school because I guess that day the kids were very trying. Apparently many were talking loudly and not paying attention to instruction. It was bad enough that the teacher felt compelled to email all the parents. I talked to the boys and they all acted very innocent and blamed the other kids in their class. I was very suspicious because they pull this kind of stuff all the time at home (blaming their brothers when it was really them). Well the next day I asked the teacher if they had contributed to the problem. To my pleasant surprise she said they are great students who always follow the rules! They were not the problem in the least. I'm so proud of them for being such good boys even under bad influence.
Traits they share include their love of Beast Masters (similar to American Ninja Warriors or American Gladiators), Pokemon cards, and Legos. They are adventurous eaters which includes any ethnic variety, seafood, spicy foods and weird meats (for example, chicken gizzards). They are great swimmers and love the pool. They don't seek attention but they LOVE it when they get it and all three are super affectionate.
