Happy Birthday Jayden

Happy Birthday to You!

Happy Birthday to You!

Happy Birthday dear punk wild child who drives me insane on a regular basis and is growing up way too fast and thinks that being told you have pretty eyes by the girls at school is a merit badge to wear on your chest and plays too many practical jokes on his dear parents making them age just way too quickly....

Happy Birthday to Youuuuuu!

Yep - it's the kid's 12th today.

At this very moment, 12 years ago - the kid was in the neo-natal ICU at McMaster Children's Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario on one side of the hospital and the wife was out cold, hooked up to lots of machines that go ping on the other side of the hospital. I had been awake for 2 and a half days and walking like a zombie from one side of the hospital to the other every hour wondering if both or either were going to make it through the day. Yep - good times all 'round. hehehe.

But, as you now know - everyone did and everyone is well. Makes you kinda thankful, don't it?

So - the kid wants a birthday brownie tonight rather than a cake. So be it. And, the kid loves Taco's and Nacho's. So... it's broccoli for dinner tonight. That'll make his eyes pop. *snicker

Well - I really should make a global statement here: Son... I couldn't be more proud of you and I love you with all my heart. Happy Birthday boy. Happy Birthday.

Dad.

Oh Scrubbie!!! I feel bad I have missed DEAR Jayden's SPECIAL DAY!!! It might have something to do with the fact that I was frantically finishing up design work so that I could tie myself to the phone for half the night and into the WEE hours of the morning wishing my MOTHER and BABY BROTHER a VERY "Happy Birthday"!!!

So, I shall NEVER forget Jayden's birthday. I also have a new niece named Jadyn. Spelled differently of course, but pronounced the same ... ME THINKS!!!

You are such a HOOT ya know! I just LOVE reading your posts and know that I am in for a GOOD READ and some LAUGHTER!

Jayden, you are a blessed PUNK KID and have some AWESOME parents kiddo!!! Take good care of them!

HAP, HAP, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
