Ian celebrated a birthday last week. It crept on me, as most birthdays tend to do. Whether mine or otherwise! This birthday was a bit more significant than the some though. This birthday had a teen placed on the back of it. AS IN thirTEEN! You wanna know how that makes me feel? Well, let me go put some wrinkle cream on and grab a few prunes....... then we will talk!
As far as teenagers go.......... Ian seems to be an easy one. Granted he has only been a teen for less than 6 days. But the past 6 days have resulted in no groundings, eye rolls, back talks, or sighs. So, for that, I'm thankful. I only have 2,184 days of teen days left with him......... not that I am counting.
We are usually leaving for our family vacation around his birthday and this year is no exception. So, as always, he will be having friends stay over immediately after our return. I didn't want his day to go unnoticed however. So Rick and I headed to town to purchase a cake, ice-cream and things to make a nice dinner for him. While looking in Wal-mart's bakery dept (for a cake that didn't have Barbie or Disney Princess on it), we found this gem!!!! This giant slab of sugery faux hamburger with a side of sweet faux french fries. How stinking perfect! Why was a hamburger cake with a side of fries perfect, you ask? My answer, THIS IS IAN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT! His heart beats faster at the sight of a juicy hamburger that fills his plate. This is the same boy who orders hamburgers at Mexican restaurants.
Happy birthday Son! Thank you for being an easy teenager these past 6 days.
I love you!
