They are first cousins and are now a couple of big, rough, football- and hockey-playing eating machines. Julian just turned twelve yesterday and Reed will be thirteen in October. (Julian was named for me and is my God-son.)
Hopefully, my mom or my sister will stop procrastinating and send me a picture of Reed’s youngest sister, Jadyn--born this past May—so I can post more cute rug-rat pictures. If I’m lucky, I’ll also get a pic of Reed’s brother and other sister—Ryan and Jordyn—and Julian’s brother, Saevonne.
If I’m really lucky, I’ll get a picture of me at fifteen, with a big wild afro, holding my youngest sister in my arms. Something for my readers to make fun of, to be sure.
