With-a-Why was the youngest member of the family to run in the family race last week. He's an unusually quiet kid so no one was surprised that he didn't say much about the race, although we'd catch a glimpse of his shy smile when we all told him how well he had done. Since the race, he has worn his t-shirt and medal every single day. It’s been nice to see him in blue, instead of the usual black. (He worships his older brother, Boy in Black – and gets his hand-me-downs.) But today, a full week after the race, I am trying to convince him that really, the shirt needs to be washed.
