All four of our babies have birthdays within a couple months. And all of their ages are really close. So, it can be confusing… Yesterday, if you’d asked me how old my kids were it would have sounded like I had twins.. 13, 13, 10 & 9. Since December 5th, I have had overlapping ages.
Today we reset until next December.
Our oldest is 14.
We have survived our first year of teen parenting.
It was not an easy year. And I don’t know that this year will be any easier.
However, I am happy to report that D survived his first year as a teen!
He is chased by the girls, admired by the boys for his running skills. He’s quiet and shy at times, but goofy and silly and loud at others. His laugh can fill a room. He challenges his teachers.. But, they all still seem to like him. He challenges us, but we do love him.
