Things are awfully exciting in our house these days. Such is the case, I suppose, when you have an 11-month-old baby and three 4-year-olds. Put simply, we’re smack dab in the middle of the “milestone wheelhouse,” if you will. Whether it’s Luke pulling himself up or the triplets learning how to ride a bike (video evidence of that forthcoming, by the way), it seems like every time Caroline and I turn around, one of our children is learning something new.
With the exception of Alli, our oldest, that is. Not that she doesn’t continue to learn every day. She does. It’s just that at age 10, she’s long left the “milestone wheelhouse.” And I gotta tell you, it’s so nice to have at least one child who doesn’t need our help 24-7. Who’s capable of great independence. And who’s such a good kid to boot.
That said, she, like many a 10-year-old, is entering the stage in which she thinks she knows it all. And it turns out that there are many things she doesn’t know. Here are 10 I wish she did.
