My Big Boy Turns 12 Today

I went to bed early last night and woke at a crazy hour this morning. I was trying to figure out why I couldn’t sleep (besides the twins crawling into bed and sleeping on my head) and I wonder if it is because I am deeply thinking about my big boy turning 12 today.

I can’t imagine where the last 12 years have gone!
