Why Can't He Be Like His Brother?

I never in a million years would have believed you if you had told me I would say that about one of my grandsons, and today I said it right out loud. 

One of the boys knows exactly what he wants to do with his life. He has a plan. He knows what kind of money he makes. He knows what he wants to do with his life and even the area in which he wants to live.

The other child knows that he wants to be happy. That is a far as it goes. In other words one has some goals and ambition and the other is just happy to be alive and in the “now”.

It’s not that either of them is wrong. It is almost to have similar conversations about what we are going to do next weekend because one needs a detailed plan with a purpose and the other needs to know there will be food and some kind of fun. Those two polar opposites doesn’t bode well for planning. I don’t care which way we go, and we can’t seem to please both of them! I respect their different decisions, it’s just hard when one wants it sets in stone and one wants to go with the flow where ever it leads.

  1. The complicated reality that is my family right now (we have a wedding in less than 35 days) is beyond stressful.

    We do what we do. With twins, I often watch them and wonder exactly that question! why are you not more like your twin?

  2. I realized that I wouldn’t be able to please everyone, hence I always just follow my heart. Every kid is really unique and has his own personality, we just have to guide them and let them follow the flow. I think both of your grandsons are good. 🙂
