It's Official

They are Teenagers. The boys turn 13 today. I am not kidding when I say it was just yesterday that they were toddlers, cruising around on tricycles, watching Blues Clues, eating spaghetti in their jeans with no shirt (screw the bibs I said!), and wearing their signature "red shoe on" (they wore red Vans sneakers for their toddler years and thats what they called them, twin speak I suppose). The years have literally flown by. My little boys are gone. Enter puberty (uggh), girls (gasp), learners permits (God help us all) and High School (NOOOOOOO!). They will always be my babies and I love them to the moon and back. Gotta go cry now. Let the games begin!

Teenagers! Happy birthday, Connor and Reed!

Oh boy, I do believe it was yesterday they were toddlers because I feel like it was yesterday that I turned 13!

Something tells me you'll all navigate the teen years just fine!

Ugh! I keep reading about the teen years in all of those parenting books I have been reading obsessively... no one offers any hope (grin). Happy birthday to the boys.
