It’s the First Day of School. Allow me a moment to discuss the two things I’m most proud of making: these are my babies. Except, they’re not really babies anymore.
Elena is a beautiful, smart, creative and independent young woman. She plays the violin, knits, reads everything with words, writes prolifically, speaks multiple languages and is learning to drive.
Gareth is a self-proclaimed Geek and is a boy genius, with full dimple-age in both cheeks, creating his own animations and comics, playing the clarinet, reading books that I don’t understand and voluntarily discusses math and science at the ripe old age of 12.
Already, I see them becoming the adults that are in their futures, and it amazes me. Affectionate, thoughtful, creative, and yeah, geeky, but they come by that naturally and are proud of it.
They’re also the closest brother and sister I have ever known, and that blows my mind on a regular basis.
I’m one lucky mom.
