You used to love garbage trucks and construction equipment, "One Duck Stuck" and "Corduroy". You watched "Bob the Builder" and "Little Bear". You played with Legos all day long, and your Brio train set.
I was overdue by nearly two weeks when you were born, and now it is hard to pull you out of bed in the morning. And you still have a really big head. Some things never change...
But YOU do, and you continue to grow and change every day.
There wasn't a single Lego in your presents this morning, and you were just fine with that.
You insisted on wearing your sunglasses to school so everyone could see how cool you were. Wait, do kids still use that word? (I really need to get with the current lingo, so I'm not one of 'those' old parents.)You requested dinner at Hell's Kitchen tonight, as how often can a twelve year old say 'Hell' and get away with it?
Happy Birthday Charlie! We are awfully lucky to have you in our lives.
