Celebrating Women for the Real World


Unfortunately this is a belated birthday wish, G2’s birthday was last week but we all know that blogging (as much as we all enjoy it) has to come second to life.

This year you turned 17. WOW……17! It is still so hard to believe. It seems just yesterday that you were a tot. Cutting your own hair before a special occasion; painting (with black paint) in the living room while your dad and I were still asleep (spilling it and trying to clean it up); and then there was the time when you decided to hatch an egg in your room, you hid it well, but the smell gave you up.

It has been a joy raising you and it blows me away that next year you will be able to vote and begin life as an adult. It all went so fast. I do want you to know my son, how very proud I am of you. You have turned out to be kind, loving and fairly balanced (I say fairly because of your obsession with U of M…we are still puzzled).

Representative Riddle, Governor Perry & G2


Always be yourself and never change for anyone,

because who you are is absolutely incredible…

I love you son!
Go over to G2’s blog and wish him a Happy (belated) Birthday

    Awww that’s sweet!!!! And you can let him know that only very very intelligent young wee ones try to hatch eggs in their bedrooms. *wink* (Yeah, been there, done that… more than a few times.)

    Way to bring home to me that my little boy will someday be 17 too. That picture of him when he’s little…ah, just makes you want to pinch those cheeks. And what a handsome young man!

    my 12 year old son is just an inch or so shorter than i am (5’10”) and every time i look him in the eyes i realize that soon enough he’ll be taller, and then MUCH taller than i am.

    it is just amazing, wonderful, and sad to watch them grow up and up and UP!
