I have been blessed to have both a boy and a girl. The Inventor is currently 12, soon to be 13 and SportTman is 15. As you can see from the picture above, they are both such lovely children!
I have noticed a “few” differences between them over the years, and just recently heard these things around my house.
The Inventor, ” Mom, have you seen my TEAL shirt?”
SportTman, “What is TEAL?”
The Inventor, “It’s a shade of green, with a bit of blue in it.”
SportTman, “Then just call it greenish, w/ some blue!!!!”
I sat and talked with The Inventor for over a half hour, I had gone in to say good night, and what followed was a usual lengthy bedtime discussion.
I then went down to say good night to SportTman, he simply said “Good night Mom” and he was off to sleep!!!
Then Inventor sets her alarm and gets up each morning at 6:00, her clothes are laid out the night before, she lingers in the bathroom, and has her school stuff all laid out and ready to go each morning.
SportTman, gets up at 6:30, takes a quick shower, gathers his clothes from the floor, or clean laundry basket, looks helplessly around his floor for his school books. And scurries out to the car, often still putting on his shoes!
I love them both, and love how God created each child so unique and special!
God truly did make
Girls and Boys
Men and Women
Husband and Wives
All for His purposes!
