Friday Morning April 22, 1994
12:17 a.m.


Justin,
You are now registered for kindergarten. Wow, you're growing up so fast. Just think, in August I will have a kid in school. Am I old enough for that? Must be. Boy, how time flies once you get married and have children.


You are so curious about the world around you. You are constantly asking questions and wanting to show me something. Today you asked me how they make people. I still don't know who "they" was referring to. Granny told you that God made people. "Who made God?" was your next question. He was always here. You said then that the people made God and then God made the people. "No, that wouldn't work," I told you. "I guess God made himself." Anyway, we stopped talking about it because it's too complicated for a 5 year-old to comprehend.

I took you to get shots Tuesday. You had 2 shots, a TB skin test, and oral polio vaccine. Your arm is still sore. You screamed when you got them. But the good news is that you don't have to have any more for 10 years! I know you're glad about that.

Well, it's getting late now, and I should get some rest. I love you so much!

Mom
