Daisy over at I’m Nobody! Who Are You? has decided to find something to be thankful for everyday in the month leading up to Thanksgiving. I am going to join in and spend the next month being thankful. Yesterday marked the first day of the month before Thanksgiving, and the first day to find something to be thankful for.
Jesse is funny, annoying, and caring all at the same time. He is the big brother who pestered me my whole childhood. He use to have me hold his legs up while he sat on the couch watching cartoons, he gave me wet willies all the time, and he had no problem sharing all his bodily functions with everyone.
When I found out I was pregnant I told my mom that I would be happy with any child, but I didn’t want to get a child with Jesse’s personality. Then I had Decca, and in many ways he was a clone of Jesse. They share looks and personality, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Jesse and Decca are very close, and I am thankful for this relationship and for the time Jesse spends with the kids. He has helped Decca in his journey with selective mutism, and he led Decca down the path of being able to call me mutti. And for that I will always be thankful.
