We have some kind of big news around here.
Superhero 1 and Superhero 2 turned double digits and teenager (!!!) …
… five months ago today.
I’ve been trying to write about these boys who get the short end of the adoption blog stick (but definitely NOT the short end of the mama cabby stick, thanks to 5 billion activities that keep my gas tank permanently on E) for the last five months, but for some reason, the humans in my house always need something.
Or Breakfast No. 7 because Breakfast No. 6 happened like 15 minutes ago.
With twice as many opportunities to write about Superheroes 3 and 4 with both birthdays and Gotcha Days/Family Days to celebrate, we somehow always manage to sneak in posts about the younger boys. (Their triumphs and victories are often so huge considering their hard histories and losses in this life that they’re hard NOT to document and publicly celebrate.)
But before I know it, the older two boys will be in their college dorms Googling this blog and taking themselves to therapy because Mom was too busy feeding them and driving them to publicly celebrate their awesomeness, even though she somehow posted regular videos of the superhero who takes videos of his own awesomeness when I’m not paying enough attention to his comic greatness.
So, while we have a hurrication day off school, and before they’re 10 ½ and 13 ½ (one month shy — that’s killing it these days!), I had to share what these boys are doing in this, their last year of elementary and middle school.
