These are our prides and joys - The Monsters
This is from 2 Christmas' ago when Santa put these wax mustaches in all of their stockings. That Santa! What a jokester!
Of course, they've inherited our very dry sarcasm and "Monty Python" style sense of humors. They're all unbearably handsome, incredibly smart (which their grades don't always reflect!) and tower over their 5'10" parents. They were born 2 years apart from each other and get along most of the time. Mostly. To paraphrase something I read by Dr. Mike Bradley when asked how to stop siblings from fighting. His response was to have them 4+ years apart. Wow! Really? Now he tells me! (BTW I highly respect his analysis of the teenager's mind.) However, if we had spaced them 4 years apart my youngest would be only 11 and we'd be that much further away from moving down south, which is currently in our 4 year plan book.
There's nothing like a teenager to demonstrate how much plucking your heartstrings can take!
