Blog Hop: Average May Not Be Extraordinary, But It Sure Isn’t Bad

Average (noun): a standard or level that is considered to be typical or usual.

The same applies as I recall my children’s developmental milestones during their early years. When they were babies, all I wished for at each doctor’s visit was the reassurance that my little ones were doing what was “typical or usual” for their ages.

Yet, as my kids have gotten older, average isn’t quite what it used to be.

The truth is... Extraordinary is not average. And, average is not subpar. Y’all, we have totally lost our way.
