weekends with the chickadees...

… i am quite enjoying weekends with the chickadees. The odd and interesting interactions, between each other, their dad and I, and the hilarity that often ensures.  It’s also quite thought provoking, and could create some very good conversations on the different practices of child rearing in the 21st century. I can sometimes enjoy the luxury of watching as an observer, outside of the realm of responsibility and accountabily….you know, not my kids, not really my problem… and cerrtainly not enough time to actually influence and change their behaviors. And the observations are curious, to say the least. The chickadees are remarkable, and growing so quickly, and developing their own opinions and vocabularys.

I often wonder how different it could all be. And more than once i’ve asked myself, how kids get to be the way they are. And if it’s simple genetics, or products of their environments. They do alot of things that i can see their dad do as well, which is comical [and sometimes creepy]….
