Raising a boy and a girl 14 months apart isn't easy
You have two kids who are 14 months apart. How cute, they look a lot alike...are they twins? One is taller and more mature than the other, so that can't be.

Two can be a blessing, yet can also be trouble at times. I will be writing a series of "sibling" articles in the future about raising my 9 1/2 year old girl and almost 11 year old boy. I will be sharing with you the joys and the whoas, and hope that I can help others understand their kids more and why they do and say the things that they do.

Meet Cassandra....she is 9 1/2 going on 11. She is tallest in her class, more mature and very bright. She always makes straight A's and finishes her homework in record time. She loves to read, write stories (where did she get that from?), ride her bike, rollerblade and play video games.

Meet Arthur....he will be 11 soon, yet is ADHD and has some dyslexia, he acts and looks around 9 1/2. He tries very hard in school and has to have special resource classes to get by for his 2nd grade reading level and 1st grade writing level.He loves to draw comic book characters that he creates, collect and study astronomy and space, dual Yu-Gi-Oh cards with friends, ride his bike and play video games.

You will be reading in the coming months their adventures and how they make it being with one another 24/7, even though they have separate rooms to retreat in.

Stay tuned...you just might learn something or something might touch you, and you might even chuckle. Kids can do and say the darnest things.
