Happy Birthday to my adult son! My first born. Wow. Here he is having his first beer ever (right). Seriously, he has been my "guinea pig" as a parent...so many firsts in child-rearing; without him I wouldn't have discovered so many things along the way.
Firsts: parenthood, tee ball, play groups, Cooperstown, lacrosse, hilarious, offbeat movies, alternative music, photography, and Boston to name a few.
Fear: What can I say? He was my first born! I was afraid to let him do anything, but he had no fear!! Trust me.
Fun: He is a really fun guy to be around as his sense of humor is unparalleled...I think he makes me laugh more than anyone.
He has grown up to be quite a guy. Very smart, extremely interesting and a great conversationalist. When he leaves for school, the house is just not the same. So, Happy Birthday, bud. Thanks for being you and I love you more than you could ever know.
