    Suddenly he's SIX!

    Today my middle grandson, Camden — whom you may know as Mac — turns six years old. Six. Years. Old. Today!

    Happy sixth birthday to my crazy Cam!

    Cam who giggles and jokes and feels all his feels, from the best to the worst, more deeply — more dramatically! — than most.

    Cam the budding artist...

    And American Ninja Warrior in the making...

    Cam who loves dinosaurs and MOANA and Spider Man and Spider Knight, too...

    Happy sixth birthday to Camden whom I love completely, unconditionally to his kooky yet kind and compassionate core... plus a whole heckuva lot more!
