It’s a big day for the Wilsons today. We sent our first child off to school today. Granted, he’s in second grade so it’s nothing new to him. But for The Missus and me it’s a first. Here’s to a successful school year!

Another child is notable for what he’s not doing today. He no longer has to go to a daycare that didn’t seem to suit him. Instead he’ll stay home with Robbie and The Missus. And by “stay home” I don’t actually mean stay home. They’ll have all sorts of adventures around town, though they will also do some preschool work here at the house.

As for Robbie, the biggest change for him will be having a new playmate around nearly all the time. He will love that. He may not love having to share mom’s attention. We’ll need to prepare ourselves for any side effects that may have. To Robbie’s credit, he has adapted to his two new “siblings” just fine so far. If anything he spoils them too much.

And The Missus and me? We’re just trying to keep our heads screwed on straight. Going so abruptly from one kid to three kids has been a challenge—oh how I wish I could tell about all the challenges!—but overall we’re getting along nicely. Perhaps most important is that our relationship is as strong as ever. That’s not always true in families that change size quickly and I can understand why. We wish we knew more about what the future holds, but then again who doesn’t?

Breakfast time; my hard boiled eggs are calling me.

Just a little salt and pepper for me.

I must have missed a post somewhere.  You have two new kids?  Congratulations!

I initially mentioned it here, so it was easy to miss. I’ve intentionally kept posts about them to a minimum for their privacy. It will be like that for all our foster kids, so be ready for random references to kids you’ve never heard of.

Robbie, on the other hand, is stuck with us. You can always count on him being around grin

Well, congratulations again.  That’s a wonderful thing you’re doing!
