I'm sure it's hard to be the youngest child at times. (I wouldn't know, being an oldest child.)
Even though he does get a fair amount of bossing around and has to fight for his rights sometimes (solely with Kieran, really), Nicholas is lucky to have two older brothers. (I would have liked an older sibling, even though I also liked being the oldest myself.)
The other day Kieran gave Nicholas a martial arts lesson--Nick was wearing one of his old belts and using oven mitts for martial arts gloves (not sure who came up with that idea!):
I've had meetings the last two nights after work. Last night I home from work to find Chris reading a book to Nicholas. He was watching him while Mike took Kieran to martial arts. Such a wonderful sight! I had only a half-hour before I had to go out again, and was trying to eat my dinner while Nick wanted to clamor on my lap. Chris suggested they go up to his room together. Soon I heard Nick singing, which he does when he's happy.
There's nothing that makes a parent more content than seeing his or her children spend time with each other and enjoy each other!
