Drew’s birthday is on December 24th. We really do our best to try and separate it from Christmas. We plan events that are birthday specific. We use birthday wrapping paper. We have specific events with family on Christmas eve that is supposed to be birthday only (not always successful). I even do my annual (Dad take Drew to) birthday for his birthday. I do the birthday thing with both my kids on their birthday. Nothing stops this. I’ve done it every year of their life.
So, why did I find myself feeding 9 15 year old boys tonight (March 6th) at the skatepark in celebration of Drew’s birthday?
Quick answer….there was a bunch of snow around Drew’s birthday that hindered a “friend” party. Now, I don’t think that is one of the earmarks that were just shoved in the first round of legislation under our new Preslebrity. Nor was it an executive order. My kids believe they have a right to have a “friend” birthday party every year.
The other reason might be that Drew has been restricted for 3 weeks due to grades and this was his last ditch effort to squeeze out of restriction for one night.
Either way….I got to play the cool dad. Driving the boys to the skate park. Listening to noise coming out of the radio that I couldn’t recognize much less enjoy (I sound like my dad), & buying them all pizza, soda, & Slurpee’s. It was a great fun night. I love it. I’ve got a great kid. He’s smart (just needs to do schoolwork to his potential), talented, great skater, loyal friend, fun to be with, & my guy.
Happy Birthday Drew
We’re celebrating the giving of thanks with Brenda’s brother and his wife Roxanne. We ate Turkey at noon….visited Starbucks at 4PM…..watched the traveling pants 2….and now we’re just lounging. Spending the night the doing some shopping and visiting Grandma Coggins in Mt. Vernon tomorrow.
My birthday was last week. Specifically Sunday, October 19th. I had a great birthday. The day before my family took me out and we went bowling (Brenda beat me), then dinner at CPK, & to a movie. Nothing better than hanging with my wife and two beautiful kids on my birthday.
I’m 41 years old now. Wow, tha’s old!
