My Baby is Not a Baby

A couple days late posting this, but I couldn't let my baby boy's birthday pass without saying something. Daniel Handsome Lad turned 15 (!) on Sunday.

We had a nice family lunch out at Peppertree, as we often do on these occasions. I got him a new skateboard, as he requested. We actually went out on Saturday and he picked out all the parts and had it put together, but he asked me to hold on to it until the next day :)   After lunch, we went back to WTG's for cupcakes. It is getting harder for me to be at WTG's house...and that isn't really a bad thing. Following that, I took Handsome Lad out to spend his birthday money. He really did need some new clothes and he always enjoys clothes shopping. I think it was a good birthday for him.

♥♥♥Have a great 15th year, Handsome Lad. Stay hip, hipster.♥♥♥

Happy Birthday to your son!

My youngest hit 15 half a year ago and I also had that "not a baby any more" feeling.

Who's WTG?

Secret: He keeps talking about how he can drive in 6 months!
WTG is my ex. It has taken us years and me getting seriously involved with someone else for us to have a healthier relationship.

Ah. I assumed it was an acronym and was trying out possibilities in my head: Wylie T. Guyote, What The Guck, Who's That Guy, Whiny Trifling Gutbucket. That sort of thing.

Secret: haha! Well, yes, it actually is an acronym! He's had it for a long time...Wind Tunnel Guy. I like yours better :)

Happy Birthday, Handsome Lad! It sounds like he had a fun birthday! I like that he assembled the skateboard but had you hold onto it for a day. :)

Tara: It seemed like a good sign of self-control. He tends to want most things immediately or sooner :-D
