My Other Children

I need to introduce my other kids, before it looks like I only have a daugher... This is my Miller, he is 12, and my Kaylor... he is 7. I think they are pretty darn cute... they are both smart, sweet, loving... but not very helpful. I thought having older kids was like having slave labor... not in this house. The time alone getting these boys to pull their weight around here makes me just want to hire someone for real!!! In all honesty, Miller can clean a house and bake cookies like no other, problem is... he is moodier than a pregnant woman with no chocolate and will only cooperate when he is "in the mood." All things considered, we kinda like them and have decided to keep them both!
OK, back to Joslyn... just kidding... kinda...

Joslyn has such a strong nurturing nature, that EVERYTHING is at risk of being "loved" by her. Here we see her loving nature displayed as she "builds a house" for her hopper, then takes it with her as she shares some sardines and crackers with her dad (I haven't decided which would nausiate me more... carrying around a grasshopper, or eating sardines!)

I realize most kids do love animals, but Joslyn shows no judgement as she loves on every thing from resin/concrete lawn bunnies to our own poor little tortured live cats. (Even my hand is rocked and snuggled as "Baby Mia." But that's another entire blog entry)

At the Children's Museum she walked up to even the largest & scariest of the dinosaurs demanding "I hold it."
