Number One Son
Twenty-four years ago today, on Super Bowl Sunday, I gave birth to my one and only child. Born in the first month, at 1:01 am, weighing 8 pounds 1 ounce and measuring 21 inches in length he was bound to be number 1 in our hearts. What a pleasure to raise this boy was, which didn't leave us very prepared to say goodbye to him in front of that dorm room several years ago. I had always heard that by the time you get through the teen years you are ready for them to move out, not so in our case. Wise beyond his years he always amazed us with his common sense and larger than life vocabulary.
Now a man with a very deep voice he continues to make us proud. Always able to make things happen for himself, while making friends along the way.
Once my child and now my friend.
Happy Birthday My Son.
