This guy right here turns 6 today. He has the best imagination, loves Iron Man (hence the Iron Man pose above), shows kindness always and is a great brother to his 4 sisters. That's right. One boy and four girls + mom and dad make up our family. And do you know what...he. doesn't. NEED. a. brother. And you don't need to "feel sorry" for him that he is not growing up with a brother. Is he outnumbered? Technically speaking, yes. But his sisters also like Iron Man and enjoy playing with Legos and help him when he's outside and wants to try his sister's roller blades. The only times he feels like he is missing out on something is if YOU TELL HIM HE IS. God has given me the world's best son and I can't stand when people assume they know what is best for my family and my children.
So how about, instead of focusing on what is wrong with being the only brother in a room full of sisters, let's focus on the fact that he is growing up with four strong sisters who will fiercely fight for him and he'd do the same for them. Love for siblings comes from seeing people for who they are through their personality, kindness and passion, not based on their gender.
Happy birthday, Bud. We love you 3000.
Hi, I'm Rebecca
I’m a wife, mom to 5 kids, former choir teacher, Christian and advice giver? I can honestly say I never expected to be the one giving advice when I so frequently ask for it, but the advice I’ve received is so valuable and must be shared! Here are some of the things I’ve learned so far!
