This morning, I got to go to Kaydon's class this morning. He had to do his Colony Presentation. He wanted me there. I wanted to be there! When his teacher introduced him, she said, "Kaydon Jorgensen is ready to present." He said, "Um, that's William Penn to you." My kid is rad. This kid, who could barely read last year (in fourth grade), stood up there and read like a high schooler! I could not be more proud of him. He has come SO far! He isn't too fond of human beings, but he loves his mama. He rocked his presentation!

Sometimes I wonder if I really, fully enjoyed every moment of my babies when they WERE babies. Now, they're taller than me! Things were really chaotic when they were little. I had a double stroller. It carried Braxton and Kaydon. I had a backpack, which toted Colton. I had Jackson, who held tight to my shirt or pants. I had a medical pole, which I pushed with my right hand, which I pushed the stroller with my left. I made it through those times, but I am not sure if I really fully enjoyed them and embraced them. Sometimes I feel like I just endured them... I just made it through. A co-worker had twins in December. I love these babies. I love my own babies, too. But, I love just holding these babies and making them smile and laugh, cuddling with them, bouncing them, talking to them, smelling them... you get the picture. They came to visit yesterday. I ate it up!
