Bradly is five and Kyle is three-years-old in this picture.
I know many friends that raise their son and daughter differently or if children are very far apart in age. My oldest sister and I are twelve years apart, of course, we were raised differently. But I have my two boys and raise them completely different, only being two and half years apart. Do you raise your children differently?
When Bradly was born he had to stay in the NICU for ten days. (story here) I was a very stressed, first-time mama and my mama instincts were just kicking in. Once we got home I didn’t want to leave his side. Six years later there has only been a handful of times I left him other than with my husband.
I always pushed Bradly to do more than children his own age. One thing Bradly was interested in was anything electronic. We introduced the T.V. to him probably before the age of two. He was listening to the iPod and surfing through Netflix all the time. My first mistake as a mother?
Kyle, my sneaky little one has nothing to do with electronics. We decided not to introduce electronics to Kyle. I’ve never really pushed Kyle to do more. Even today he doesn’t turn the T.V. on (then again he has Bradly to do it for him). Bradly has recently been trying to teach Kyle how to play video games but Kyle has no interest. He loves playing with his toys, which I don’t mind.
What do you think? Was it a mistake introducing electronics to Bradly or is Kyle now behind? I want to hear your stories. If you have your own blog about this topic share it in the comment section or email me. I can go on and on about my children. I definitely have crazy stories to share with you. Stay connected with me to find out more about me and my pride. Love ya, Mary xoxoxo
