So grown up!

This is Jackson’s spring school photo.

I asked him why he didn’t smile like he normally does, and he said he’s embarrassed about his teeth. Poor boy!! He has a spacer currently, and will be getting braces in a month. I told him his smile is beautiful regardless, but that his teeth will be in much better shape next time. But…look at how big he’s gotten!! ❤️😍❤️

I don’t have Freya’s spring pics back yet, but look at this pic her mom took on Tuesday night.

I can’t believe how grown up she looks. ❤️❤️

It’s goes by so fast.


Jackson had a lot of fun at Flying Spider. He’s a genuinely happy kid, and I hope it stays that way.

Freya refused to allow herself to have fun and spent most of the time sulking. This moody teen shit is already getting on my nerves. We had a talk about it, and she apologized, but I can tell shit is about to get real.

I am walking this fine line with her: how much slack do I give her, knowing she’s going through a lot of shit, versus not allowing her to take advantage and act shitty to us.

I miss the simpler times. Sigh.
