Sometimes I feel really bad for my older son Tyler. His younger brother Carter has these amazing abilities that he just can't seem to master. Whether it's crossing his eyes, or wiggling his eyebrows, Tyler has not been able to match the incredible talents of his younger brother. What can I say, Carter has been blessed with superhero type skills that will certainly take him far in life.
Take for example his ability to wiggle his nose.
I am certainly not surprised by this, as it seems that Carter can do pretty much anything that I can do. He may look like his mother but when it comes to this simple life skills, this boy is all mine. What this will mean for him later in life who knows, I can't say that I landed my wife due to my ability to wiggle my nose and ears. Or maybe I did.
Tyler on the other hand has the same abilities, or the lack there of, as his mother; he looks like me but he acts like my wife.
Clearly this is something that we are going to have to work on. I would hate for him to be put in a situation later in life where he was asked to perform this simple task.
I've said this before but it really amazes sometimes that these two kids can have the same parents, yet not be have the ability to do the same things. They really do pick up the best traits from both us. Like wiggling your nose, some are more important than others.
What do you notice about your kids?
