truly a middle child
the past two years this kid got the shaft on a birthday celebration. so, this past week was all about him. oh, it was on. he ate it up and gave me great joy with his joy. the whole week was filled with celebration. (don't forget, self, that he said on his 14th birthday he wanted a dance party with a cotton candy machine so his little brothers could dance like he danced at his sister's 14th party).

son, you light up each and every day. in a big way. it is kinda your shtick and it really works.
