Boys Together Lately

Because of their 6 year gap in age, Jacob and James don’t often play together very well. Watching them spend time together is like watching a silent chaotic movie. Jacob prefers spending time with Daddy to playing with James. And James would prefer cuddling with Mommy to wrestling with Jacob. However, there is a silver lining in that for all of us.

James is perpetually trying to catch up with Jacob. We think he will always feel older than his age and enjoys conquering challenges. When being with James, Jacob gets to experience a second toddlerhood. As a result, Jacob will probably feel younger than his age and learns to be protective of younger ones. For Mommy and Daddy, being with our boys helps us relive our childhood fun.

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
