My boys are such an unexpected combination. Each of them are everyday a surprise to me, more individual and complex than I ever could have foreseen. My boys are wild and sweet, brave and sensitive, oblivious and observant, curious and self-assured, messy and helpful, loving and ferocious, emotional and strong, shy and headstrong, independent and needy, affectionate and violent, rough and admiring, artistic and logical, stoic and vulnerable, faithful and inquisitive. They are beautiful and complete people, and I have the responsibility to introduce them to this world.
My hope is that if I do it right, they will become kind, loving, able, brave, communicative, stalwart, confident, humble, thoughtful, helpful, hardworking and faithful adults.
(that's a lot of adjectives!)
