I know, a late dinner again, it’s the daylight savings that’s a killer for a timely nightime routine.
- the Middle Child is going through the six-year-old testosterone hit. I don’t know if there really is a six-year-old testosterone hit, but I’m stating there is as DEAR GOD there has to be a reason for the sudden explosive increase in the already competitive, aggressive, dominant and LOUD oh GOD SO LOUD child.
