The Pickle

I realized I don’t talk about The Pickle much. So today this post is dedicated to him.

As you may have read from previous blogs The Pickle and I don’t have that much of a relationship. He’s more of an introvert while I’m an extrovert. He likes hacking/slashing/killing things as his “play time” and I believe appropriate play time is using more creativity. I am really proud of my stepson for this endeavor. He wanted to try baseball again this year. Last year was his first year participating in baseball and when he wasn’t trying to goof off to get attention he did really well! Given that The Pickle would prefer to play video games all day I was really surprised when his mother let us know he was able to sign up. It breaks my heart we can’t be at his first baseball tournament tonight because we’re waiting on a new tire for the SUV. Luckily he has a few more tournaments coming up we might be able to get to go to. It all depends on Reavera’s schedule. Thankfully Reavera’s work will start giving him Sundays off soon.  We’re also trying to work with The Pickle’s mother as to what we want to do for this summer. I’d love to coordinate a time when there is something going on where we live at that we can all enjoy as a blended family.

I got a cute picture from his mother today. It was picture day at one of his baseball practices recently. He’s so handsome.

Even with all of the differences we have I still love my stepson as my own. I hope one day he will see that too.  Good luck tonight Pickle. Your father and I are very proud of you.

    That is a great picture of the pickle. He is getting so big, I haven seen him since he was a baby, and I do enjoy seeing the occasional pic of him on your facebook. My daughter Grace is around his age and it is amazing how fast they grow up. I know that you will settle into your role as Step Mom and will grow that relationship more as time goes on. I think you are doing a great job of parenting for both boys.
