I think that sometimes is is hard for Mini growing up in Maxi’s shadow. People often revel in the fact that Maxi is super clever and leave Mini out of the equation. The thing is both of the boys are bright, but Maxi’s shows his intelligence everyday, whilst Mini well he is just Mini, unique and special.
However, this week Mini has excelled himself by being awarded the Headteachers award for creativity (something that Maxi has never had) and also a certificate from his teacher for independently writing a story about a superhero on the computer.
When I asked him who his favorite superhero was on Sunday he responded by saying his Daddy and Big Brother. Oh my that boy can melt our hearts!
I can totally relate to this post Jen. We have the same situation with the twins. As long as you foster both their talents and strengths, that’s the main thing I think. Its other people who tend to always be comparing our boys.
What a wonderful award to win, he must have been thrilled to bits xxx
That is so sweet!
Aww – him saying his dad and brother are his favourite super heroes brought tears to my eyes, that’s lovely!
Well done to Mini, that’s great news. 🙂
I’ve always had the same and in fact number 2 who is still way above average sits in the middle of 2 exceptionally bright siblings. He’s okay though. X

What a heartbreaker!
Ohhh YAY Mini! What a clever lil man! 🙂 x
It’s such a hard one worrying that siblings are compared to each other. I guess you make a big fuss about things like this – and his choice of superheroes show what a wonderful wee boy her is. Juliex
