I interrupt this live blogging

August 7, 2007

to put up this contractually obligated link to my post at Parenting.

I think that in every family with more than two children, there is a “middle child.” I am sorry Bug, but in our family it is you.

We have the oldest two boys who are into sports and Bionicles and do things together.

Your two brothers below you, who are into into sports and being destructive — we call them “The Little Guys.”

Then we have the two youngest, “The Babies,” who are into getting away with murder and driving me to an early death.

And then there is you.

Yes, my son’s birthday was two months ago. What’s your point?

    You brought tears to my eyes with your ruminations.

    Okay spill it. What exactly is your job and how did you end up doing all these blogs?? I am up to four blogs and still counting. Would love to know. Love the day in the life of - amazing what we women do and more amazing our husbands have no idea. He told me the other day that I don’t “do” anything. Uhm, other than the laundry, cooking, cleaning and what I call the clean sweep. Where you go from room to room four or five times a day to clean, throw away, pick up and other such nonesense. The man is crazy.

    I used to be so on top on birthdays. Then, everything got screwy once we moved to Seattle. We got behind which started a domino effect. We had Eldest’s birthday 6 month late in February. Then we had PB’s birthday party in March-again 6 months late. Did I mention that Li’l Man’s birthday fell around that time, so no birthday party yet.
    I was thinking of doing it this month–7 months late–but it’s already my Eldest’s birthday month again. Can some one please get me off this Merry-Go-Round? The guilt is killing me. We still haven’t sent out thank you cards for the last four parties. I know. I am the suckiest mommy in the world and the kids will be scarred into adulthood for sure!

    The non stop talking “”Well, remember two years ago when the moon was full and you were wearing that green shirt…” must be a thing that middle children are just programmed to do. My middle child is now 17 and still, talks and talks and talks. I love it though and I really miss him being 10. :( Enjoy them while they are young. Lovely post, Chris.
