Priceless Peacemaker

Having three sisters means growing up around a lot of wars.
There are the standard wars over toys, the bitter feuds over the last popsicle in the house and of course the knock down drag out clothing wars.
Jake has seen his fair share of wars but it never gets any easier.
If the war draws sides in the sand though, forget it, he will always be on the side of his twin sister even if he knows she is wrong.
We like to call Jake the “peacemaker” because he hates to see his sisters mad at each other, he will often do or say something funny just to make them smile.
Jake is the type of kid who will go from bedroom to bedroom trying to make negotiations or stretch the truth in one sisters favor just to get the other to forgive her.

Jake is also a boy who keeps his mouth closed if it is a no win situation like the one in this cartoon, he knows when to say nothing when you have nothing good to say, just like his momma taught him.
The funny thing is, this “peacemaker” attitude only applies to his sisters since he is a fan of war type video games and of course "peace" is never a option when it comes to playing Monopoly against his own mother, so apparently his peacemaking attitude does have it’s boundaries.


  1. Hi there. I'm stopping by from the A-Z Challenge.

    Jake sounds like a brilliant boy. That's hard to come by today. ;)

    Keep up the good work.

  2. Jake is a dream brother any girl would love to have:)
    When it comes to Mom, why should he be different from any kid?

  3. Haha - That peace making will come in handy later in life....For sure!

  4. Your son is simply ADORABLE!!! Blessings, Joanne

  5. This is great stuff! Thanks for sharing, and thanks for the encouragement at my blog!

  6. I had a sister who was a year younger than I and we had our share of battles, but we were also best friends much of the time. Even though I was older she would be protective and watch out for me. Somewhere along the line as I got older I learned the value of peacemaking and try not to be in conflict with anyone.
