"Don't you want them to be normal?"
Normal has a huge variety and range. Normal includes spicy little numbers like Mollen and intense, self motivated kids like Cai. Normal encompasses bookworms like Sloanie, rule followers like Charter and peace-makers like Peyton. Normal welcomes Ephraim, who sleeps - as well as Gagey, who doesn't.
& yes. i'm not worried about them being normal.
When people worry about kids being normal - i think what they mean is, "Don't you want them to be average?"
& no. i don't.
Average often is dragged down to the lowest common denominator - no boys can sing because there's one sullen boy in the back who has poisoned the rest into believing that singing is something that boys just don't do. Girls have to be skinny and wear make up by the time they're 13 - eccentricities, passions & differences are quashed.
So, average isn't welcome around here.
Bring on the plastic fake lips, Ephraim - you've joined a very normal family. i think you'll fit right in.
