Proactive Thinker

Christopher is in the basement woodworking (a story for another day). I am in the bedroom watching a recording of my favorite show (As Time Goes By). Bennett and Harrison are on the couch in the living room watching basketball, playing games on the iPad. This is what was heard by me:

Harrison: Here. Do you want the iPad. It's ok. You can have the iPad.
Bennett: (Silence) - - starts playing the iPad
Christopher: (heard coming up the stairs) Bennett, why were you crying?
Bennett: Harrison pinched me.
Christopher: Is that why you gave him the iPad? Because you didn't want to get into trouble?
Harrison: Well, I KNEW I was going to get in trouble so I just gave him the iPad.
Christopher: Harrison... Tell him you are sorry.
Harrison: I'm sorry, Bennett.
Bennett: That's ok.

Life goes on in the Neipert household...

Stereotypes should not be believed.

I have 2 boys of my own. I have 3 other boys that I currently care for. I have had 4 other boys in my home that I have cared for in the past.

Annabelle is the first child I have caught standing on the dining room table.
