I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
Today, my wife and I start a string of about 10 days where we will only have 1 kid at home. The younger 2 left on vacation with their grandparents from Indiana this morning. The are heading back East, the only 2 scheduled events are the Marine Corps Museum and the Marine Barracks Show, which they saw last summer. There is the possibility of a stop in Hershey, PA for rides and chocolate. Tyler was asked about going, but since Angie and I were not going to be able to go, my Dad did not feel he could take the care that Tyler needs. My Dad was also taking my sister, who is wheelchair bound with MS. So my two other kids will be doing some pushing while on vacation.
This morning, I could already feel the difference of getting one kid ready for summer school instead of 3. No arguments, fights for the bathroom, can I play my DS and she touched me and he looked at me wrong. For those of you with more than one school age kid I am sure you know what I am talking about. I am sure that after a couple of days, I might start to miss this, but I can tell you, I am going to enjoy the first couple of days.
You can tell that Tyler already misses his sister and brother. He misses the noise that they brought into our house that makes it our home.
So I guess for the next week, we are going to see what life would have been like if the Good Lord only blessed us with one child. I will keep you posted as to how long it takes before we start to miss them.
