Naturally, I remember the day he was born. It was snowing up a major storm outside, but I didn't care. I had a BABY! My very first BABY! (*crap!* Now what??)
But, we weathered that storm just fine, and here were are 16 years and a few storms later.
At 16, Chaco can be wonderfully stubborn, adoringly bellicose, delightfully bossy...
He can also be attentively helpful, demonstrably intelligent, refreshingly witty...
And I love all of his attributes. I love his rebel non-conformist side, like the one displayed here in this go-ahead-and-take-my-pic-but-don't-expect-me-to-smile-all-nicey-nice:
Happy Birthday, Chaco.
