Jack, who is 9, and Miles, who is 7.

 This is Jack.  He loves zip-ties and drawing.  He has a best friend named Dan.  He will be 10 in less than a month.  His favorite food is "nutella crepes."  He wants to be an artist.  Or an actor.  He wants to do a lot of different things, all at once. 

 This is Miles.  He is 7- he will be eight in July.  He likes lots of things in general and not so much specifically.  He is a picky eater.  He wants to sleep like a burrito, and never make his bed.  He never has a problem finding a friend to play with on the playground- on any playground.  His best friend is Michael.

These boys seek each other out, and want to play with each other, but at any moment- ANY MOMENT- it might become a violent and loud fight.  What was play one second ago becomes a battle this second.  The worst punishment I can give them is to not let them play with each other.

That was so succinct! And a picture is worth a thousand words! You and Rosie went through phases like that- best friends, then mortal combat when you were younger. I would separate you and it would pain you both so . REmember, I told you, If you can't be together nicely, you cant be together!

Jack always struck me as an artist. Kindred spirit there. :)

"He wants to do a lot of different things, all at once." Story of my life. Please do share tips if he finds success here.

"He wants to sleep like a burrito, and never make his bed." Me,TOO! This is uncanny. I feel like I'm a long-lost member of your family.

Your boys are just plain great, and that last picture of them with each other is ageless.
