The boys and I were sitting outside for lunch today. I try to come up with conversations to have with them, just for fun and to see what they are thinking every once in a while. As you probably know, boys don't share what they are thinking very well and I'm trying my hardest to instill good communication in them. It's a chore sometimes, but I'm hoping it will benefit them in the future. Today's topic was: "Do you know what stress is? And, What stresses do you have?"
Jacob(13) said his stressors in life were: "Exams, Tests, and Homework."
Nolan(9) said his stressors were: "I really don't have any stress, except when Gavin is in the hospital. Oh, and baseball games."
Caleb(6) said his were: "Having to hoe the garden, Picking up my toys, Having to go to bed at night or take a nap, My brothers sometimes, and Building Legos, because I can't always find the pieces that I need and they fall apart!"
Wouldn't it be wonderful to have the stess of a 6 year old?!
Just look how stressed out my 6 year old is!
