Watching a child grow to an adult is an amazing thing. 

Watching three, four, five or six do the same is staggering. 

Guess I’m getting old. That’s something old people say. 

But since I said it…

There is a magic time in the lives of your children when the pecome… people. Not to say that kids aren’t people… But Thy really aren’t. They are… Kiddos, kiddies, little ones, cherubs…

You get the picture. 

But somehow… One day… You look up and the kiddies are gone. They have vanished and have been replaced with people. 

Hopefully good people. Happy people. People with hopes, dreams, realities and fantasies.

That’s what I saw yesterday. Here… Let me show you:

Six… People. Amazing… People! Grew up in different parts of the country under different circumstances and yet, they all made it to this spot, on this day, to celebrate, love and support that person with the flowers.


I proud of them. All of them. 

Where are your kiddies in the mix? Are they people yet? How does that feel?
