A Southern Grace: my cup runneth over

my cup runneth over


Meet Little Brother...

...incognito and masquerading as Jackie O.

Over the past few months, he's been applying to graduate programs. For a doctorate. In English. Can you say over-achiever?

[I'll go ahead and mention here that although I stuck it out and eventually earned my Master's degree, I was pretty much sick of school about two weeks into that first semester. Apparently the ambition gene skipped right over me and went straight to LB.]

He's already heard from three schools, and I'm just chock-full of big-sister pride because he's been accepted to two (as if there was ever any doubt). Perhaps Meatloaf said it best: "Two out of three ain't bad."

Congrats, LB! My cup runneth over!
