I guess I don’t even know what a cut ABOVE genius is, but maybe it’s professional level genius. Anyway, it’s fun. It’s candy. It’s rainbow. And it’s summer. Not too much to think about right now. We have a few summer birthdays coming up, which I can’t believe. Like I can’t believe that my oldest will be a teenager. Some people have asked me if having new babies takes away the sting of the older kids growing up and it’s really yes AND no. Yes, it has helped so much that Scarlet started middle school right before I gave birth to the ever-awesome Rider. Otherwise, middle school was a tough nut to crack (process). On the other hand, I can’t believe my oldest two are 10 and almost 13. Although in the grand scheme of life, that’s a lot of childhood and youth left.
