to be fair

i constantly say that payton is a difficult child.
he will be the death of me.
he is driving me crazy.

but, he is a caring, thoughtful, and a sweet child. he just has to be in the mood. he is very polite and will say thank you for anything. he will tell you he is sorry if he has done something wrong. he will pick up a toy and give it to his brother. many times he has taken tayte's cup to tayte without being asked.

the other night the boys were in our bed watching tv. payton took his "me" and covered tayte up.

he loves both of his brothers and tries to make sure they are happy.

so as much as i complain about how hard he is, he is just as equally caring and compassionate.

i love that kid. and i am lucky to be his mother, because he is making me a better person each day.



i have a confession to make.

i am a hussy. i hop from one man's bed to the next without a second thought.

in fact, i do this with the blessing of my husband.

for those of you that haven't figured this out yet i mean my boys. last night i slept with tayte. i went in their room to kiss them all good night. as i was getting ready to leave tayte asked if i would sleep with them. i went into my room to grab my favorite blanket and pillow. lee was getting comfy in a bed without me. he didn't even make a fuss. it was several years ago lee did complain.

"why do you always sleep with them when they ask?"

i looked at him and replied, "because one day they won't ask."

after that comment lee doesn't say a word. he even lets all three of the boys in our bed with me and he will sleep in one of their beds.

there are several things that baylee has already quit doing. he is growing up too fast. he is too cool for some things.

but he still asks me to sleep with him. and each time he does i will, because it makes me sad that one day he won't ask. and that day is getting closer, every night.
