During this hard time, while people are glued to the news and hugging their children, let’s talk about something meaningful and endearing: what sweet things are the kids in your life doing these days?
At 10, Anton is at such a funny in-between age. In many ways, he seems almost like a peer — he likes watching Derry Girls, he beats me at Tenzi, he makes scrambled eggs with mustard powder. But at bedtime he still wants bedtime cuddles and lullabies. Ten! It’s the best.
Meanwhile, 13-year-old Toby sent me this text. He is always putting me first, you guys. Also, I found an old screenshot from a few years ago, when Toby used my computer to google possible birthday presents. His list?
Not too shabby!
Finally, my honorary niece went to a gymnastics class this weekend and crushed it! Watch out, Simone Biles, there’s a new kid in town!!! I feel like she also encapsulates the general mood these days *gestures widely*
What about you? What funny things are the kids in your life saying or doing these days? I would love to hear…
