Ten Things on Tuesday from Twelve-Year-Old Taylor

Today, my son and I were driving down the road, listening to “Hippie Radio” when a song came on that I had never heard. Part of the tune was whistled. Taylor, who is twelve, said, “I like songs that have whistling in them.” I’m not sure why, but that made my whole body smile. (Do you know that feeling?) So today, I am going to share some things for which my twelve-year-old is grateful.

1. Songs with whistling in them

2. The Beatles

3. the British Invasion

4. chicken

5. Dr. Who

6. contact lenses

7. making friends

8. Mrs. Haberman (his 5th grade teacher)

9. having learned to read

10. when people accept him the way he is
