I’m okay being a Dog Person (and talking to my favorite creatures in a high squeaky voice), but a new visitor is throwing me for a loop.
Time marches on, and now that my kid is halfway through her junior year, college planning is beginning in earnest. There’s so much to think about!

Yes, I am the not-so-proud owner of an 11-year-old boy who refuses to wear pants in the winter. He (very strongly) insists on wearing shorts year-round, even when the temperature is only in the high 20’s.
Sometimes I forget that in just a few shorts years, my kids will be grown and (hopefully) flown. I guess I’d better start getting ready.
Sure, we know to avoid comparing siblings to one another, but in trying to bolster and protect my kids this way, I very nearly screwed up even more.
Birthdays with teenagers can feel a lot like a timer ticking down, but sometimes they feel like victory, too. For my late bloomer, this birthday feels huge.
