  2. Colic doesn’t last forever IS a reason to celebrate ? And you are also right on how fast it goes! Our oldest, who had colic so incredibly bad, is 19 and in the Army now! I had totally forgotten he even had it until you mentioned the word, it seems so silly how “long” it seemed then. It felt like a lifetime & yet I totally forgot about it until now. Crazy.
    Oh-and Happy National Collect Rocks day to you 😉

    1. Ha Ha! National Collect Rocks Day, huh? That’s a new one to me, although my kids have been doing a lot of that this summer. In our neck of the woods, it’s all the rage right now to paint, hide, hunt, and collect “art rocks.” Have you ever spotted any of those?

      1. No we haven’t, but it sounds fun! We (yes me too..) love rocks. It’s silly, but even I am always picking them up to show them for their collections! So you paint them & hide them in public parks & woods for others to find you mean? Very Interesting! I wonder if the Metroparks and National Parks even care here…I should look into that-thanks for the cute idea 🙂

        Oh-I did find one similar a while back, but was totally disappointed to see it was an advertisement for a local public school-boring! 🙂

  3. In viewing my life through age and experience, I am one grateful 80 year old. Thank you for this thought provoking article.I am blessed!
