My step son is 14 years old and only stays with us on the weekends. Luke LOVES when "Bubba" is here (his name is Caleb, but Luke can't pronounce it) and asks for him through out the week. When I bring Luke home from daycare on Friday and he sees his big brother, he is super excited! He follows Caleb like a puppy all weekend. And Caleb is SO good with Luke, plays with him, teaches him little things, bathes him, etc. It's awesome, I hope they stay close even with the big age difference.

As I've mentioned before Troy has three older boys 6, 7, & 9. We are supposed to have them every other weekend. but the oldest lives with his Maternal Grandmother and she wont let us have him - an issue i wish Troy would get straightened out. The 6 & 7 yr olds we only get when it is convenient for thier mother, which is usually only every three to four weeks - another issue I wish he'd straighten out. So when they are here Zac gets so excited the first day he is just out of control. It usually takes until Sunday - the day the boys go home - for him to calm down enough to actaully play nice with them. It makes it so nerve wracking for me. The 7 yr old thinks he is here just to watch tv, and if he doesn't get to he pouts, and wont cooperate in whatever family activity we are doing. The 6 yr old does like to play with Zac but Zac is so wild and distructive when they are here the 6yr old thinks he is going to get in trouble for it because he is playing with Zac. When we correct the 7yr old for doing something he shouldn't he will give us an evil look and shrugg his shoulder at us like "who are you to tell me what to do?".
OMGosh, I'm about to lose my mind.
I know if we had them more often things wouldn't be this bad as we could get into a routine. I hate to say it but I'm starting to dread them coming. I just wish SO would put his foot down with the Grandmother and Mother and tell them is IS going to get them when it is his scheduled weekend, no matter what they have planned.

Sorry for the rant but sometimes it just drives me over the edge.

Bri, That is such a precious picture. So glad that they are so well bonded, just hope our's can do that someday.
