fifteen


Happy Birthday today to Chaco! Fifteen big ones.

It was a cold snowy Wednesday the day he decided to be born. I remember that Nancy Kerrigan had just recently been clubbed in the leg by a hired thug. I'm not sure why that's the most prominent news of the time I remember...

So there I was, brand new mom with this newborn to take home. He looked to me to take care of him and it's probably a good thing he didn't know how clueless I was.

But we've all managed to make it this far. Of course now, I'm an expert in all things child-rearing. *that would be sarcasm there, that last sentence*.


With my eyes, I see Chaco as smart, goofy, bossy, cocky, shy, loud, stubborn, loving, responsible, practical, irresponsible, resourceful, whiney, patient, hyper, lazy, geeky, funny, and wonderful.

I wouldn't change a thing.

So, you're saying he's a typical teenager, huh? Responsible-irresponsible, cocky-shy, hyper-lazy, whiney-patient...changing with the wind. Ah, yes, those were the days...

My smart, goofy, irresponsible, responsible, etc. son will be 15 in September and his favorite thing to say these days is..."I'll be driving next year". Makes me want to kick him, but he really is so much bigger than me now I don't think I'll take the chance.

And call me a little off balance, but that post kinda makes me feel like crying. Just sayin'.

LOOK at all that HAIR. Both my babies were bald until they were about 3.

Happy Birthday, Chaco!
Good looking kid. You say he is "smart, goofy, bossy, cocky, shy, loud, stubborn, loving, responsible, practical, irresponsible, resourceful, whiney, patient, hyper, lazy, geeky, funny, and wonderful." Which traits did he get from his mom?
