Oh, To Have the Stress of a 6 Year Old!

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!

"Even a child is known by his deeds, whether what he does is pure and right." Proverbs 20:11

That is too funny!! Poor guy! It's a good thing he doesn't know what REAL stress is yet, but he will soon enough.

I LOVE Nolan's answer. That is just so sweet.

Have a great weekend!!

This post is too cute!! Yes, I'll have Mr. Caleb's stress, please! ;o)

And Nolan sure is a heartbreaker...he's going to be the most sensitive, sweet husband ever someday!

Love it!

The easiest shirt to make is the one that looks like fireworks. Pipecleaners of various sizes, dip in paint, and dab in a star pattern. It was easy and fun!
