Don’t worry, I’m not changing the name of this blog. (I can’t imagine anyone literally worrying about that, but nonetheless…)
I have decided, after 3-1/2 years of blogging, to make things easier on myself (and probably you, too) by referring to my boys by their first initial. ” When I first started blogging, I called them “the fifteen year old” and “the twelve year old”, and then a year went by and they were “the sixteen year old” and “the thirteen year old”. Then I began referring to them as “the younger boy” and “the older boy”. Gah. It’s enough to make a person dizzy.
Frankly, not only are those nicknames a pain to type, but as time goes on, my sons are less like boys and more like young men; though one will always be younger and one will always be older, they’re really growing up and I just think it’s going to be better all around, this way.
Many of you know their real (full) names already, but I’m just going to use the first letters because it’s my way of preserving a shred of privacy for them and make it so that, if their names are googled, 1,000 pages from the Scrawl won’t pop up on command.
Anyhoo, from this point forward, the older boy will be referred to as “D” (no quotes, though), and the younger boy will be referred to as “J” (also, no quotes).
Thank you for your time and attention. Carry on.
