|Long ago in a distant galaxy far . . .|
On the left is Conor, the older one. He's 17 now and has his full driver's license!!! And Taylor, the one on the right, is 16 years old today! How could this have happened?
It's just shocking, I tell you, shocking. Has anyone else out there seen kids grow up? Did they also stop being kids one day and suddenly burst into large sizes? Is it an epidemic?
I miss those little kids and always will. They were the sweetest things that ever came into my life. But I'm proud as hell of our big guys. Taylor is about 6'3" now and Conor is my size, 6'5". And they're happy and smart and well-adjusted and kind. Amazing.
Seriously, though. Has someone seen this phenomenon? Tiny kids getting big? Is there a name for it? And I hate to say it but if this keeps up, one day we won't be in charge anymore.
Happy Birthday, Taylor! Keep 'em coming.
