Another night for Frankie.


When I started blogging, it was all about Frankie. I started while we were in the hospital, and I had nothing else to do, and Frankie "wasn't out of the woods yet," and everyone wanted to know what was going on. It was a great way to pass the time and feel like I was still in touch with everyone.

Somewhere along the line, I feel like this blog has de-generated into a brag fest about my wonderful children, (BOTH of whom are healthy, and out of the woods, now). I hope you don't mind. I write about what is going on in my life, and what is going on in my life is basically whatever is going on in my children's lives. That's why it's a mommy blog. Everyone always says, write what you know. This is what I know.

Nick has always taken a back seat in this blog. Because Nick is quieter, and more laid back. He's less focused on big achievements. The great things about Nick are what make him easy to live with and great to have around. Nick is not interested in drama, good or bad. (Not that Frankie likes to create drama. But he is much more extreme in the things that happen to him, and in the things that he accomplishes.)

Right now, Nick is working on his homework. He's been getting good grades, just not straight A's. He's involved in clubs -- at tonight's event, he was working the sound system with his friend Kyle, and at the same time, he was keeping an eye on his cousin William.

Before Nick was born, we were thinking about names. There was a quote in a movie somewhere that said of the name Nick:
"Now, Nick -- Nick's a guy you can trust." That was one of the reasons I liked the name. And he is becoming that person. I know I can count on him.

So please realize, as you read this blog -- I write more about Frankie, but not because he's my favorite son. I love them both, of course. And I'm just as proud of Nick as I am of Frank. Frankie's just got more to report on.

It's your blog, Sue. You get to write about anything and everything you want.
I am happy for you. You have two wonderful boys, and a wonderful husband. You are a wonderful wife, and mother. You have a wonderful family! That's one great blessing!
Cheers! :-)

i'm not sure we are ever out of the woods. ya, sure... there are meadows in every forest, places to rocky or dry or high that nothing can grow.
and lakes, don't forget the importance of water in our lives.
but leave one woods and you pretty soon walk into another and all you can do is try not to be lost because heavens knows, you can't go back to being a kid again no matter how hard you pretend.

Vincent -- thank you! It is a great blessing. It is also a great thing to be able to blog, isn't it?

Sera -- you are right. Sometimes it seems like the greatest struggle we had to go through was those woods. But I've never been too good at mountain tops, and I actually knew how to negotiate those woods pretty well. I'm just glad we all came out together...
