Today was a celebration of the middle. Even though you missed the title of oldest son by a measly six minutes, you check off most of the boxes for "middle child." So today I was so excited for you. An award for being a great student and kid that is just your own. In front of the whole school. I could see it all over your face. And when you got back to your seat and your buddies all high-fived you? My heart soared. So here's to the middle and you.
