Their Story Is Becoming Their Own

I don’t write as much about my kids as I do about my littles.  It’s not that there isn’t so much to say about them each and every day, it’s more that it doesn’t feel quite right to write about the goings on in their lives when I am becoming less and less a part of it.  Sigh.  It’s definitely a bitter sweet feeling.  I am no longer the absolute center of their world.

This is what we strive for as parents, to create free thinking, independent human beings, but, it goes so fast.  I blinked and they’re writing their own stories.

If you follow me on Facebook, you’ve heard about the joy that is Middle-Middle.  He will turn 12 soon.  He just exited the 5th grade.  And, he was born with a sense of humor.  I’m not kidding.

M-MNo one else could rock a sailor suit with that much irony at 9 months old.

Middle-Middle was always the one we had trouble catching a photo of without cracking up ourselves.

M-M-5He is also devastatingly handsome.  And, he always was.M-M-6At his Fifth Grade Graduation, he gave a speech that, in true M-M form, had everyone in stitches.  M-M-2

M-M-1

M-M-3

M-M-4He is writing his own story just his own way, with a sense of humor.  I love that about him.  I absolutely can’t wait to see him light the world on fire.
