Meet Hunter! This is Amber's little brother, same dad - different mom. He was missing Daddy, so he came to spend the night with daddy. He's eating some left over birthday cake and some ice cream. It's a shame that these little ones are always made to suffer in a domestic break down. He is such a loving little boy.....he can be naughty, don't get me wrong, but for the most part he listens to Bumpa and Mema when we tell him something. Although we try to leave the discipline to 'Dad', sometimes we have to step in when dad is in another room or outside and doesn't see what is going on. But I would rather leave it all to dad so I can just be a "Grandma"!
In spite of all that this child has gone through in his home environment of domestic violence (condoned by the court systems from my point of view as they won't award my son the custodial parent) he is relatively unscathed! He does tend to break down and cry when he doesn't get his own way and it takes him a while to get over his 'attitude', for the most part he is a pretty happy-go-lucky kind of boy! He will be 5 the end of May and I'm sure we will be hosting a birthday party for him too!
