Snap It Outdoors: Very Indoors


I’ve written before about Red’s prematurity. He’s now 6 1/2, right on the 50th percentile for height and weight, and a lot of people don’t know about his birth story. He knows.  He knows some, but we don’t talk about it much, other than to tell him the facts; he was born earlier than he was supposed to arrive, and he needed a lot of help in the hospital until he was strong enough to come home. So I teared up when I found this picture in his backpack after kindergarten last week.  A NICU nurse had been in to visit and discuss their job. Red’s takeaway from it all? ‘Prematurity day is very close to my birthday.’
