We Didn't Plan it this Way, but ...


Happy 1st decade, sweet boy, and welcome to double digits!! We love everything about you: your gifted mind, your sensitive heart, your passion for the arts. We think it's pretty neat that you were born on our anniversary, and if you're sure that you want to have your birthday dinner at Taco Bell tonight, well ... we're okay with that, too :)
~~~
Happy 1.6 decades to us, Checkered. I would not have missed these years with you for anything. Love you forever !
(But why did it take 16 years for me to learn that husbands don't love Christmas sweaters?)

What a special day!

Happy anniversary to you and Checkered, and happy birthday to the double-digit boy!

AND it's Friday. That should count for a few more burritos and tacos :)

Checkered said...

Christmas Sweaters are like wrapping paper. It's what's inside that I'm interested in.

Stopping by from SITS rollcall. Your post title caught my eye!! We have a lot in common! My eldest was not expected either and he is fast approaching double digits too! I am also a former teacher, but now work at home running an in-home daycare.

Congrats to you and your family!

Oh.
The curls. All that hair!
Those eyes.
Those cheeks!
Meant to be kissed.

Just to be clear, I'm talking about your son.

Congratulations on your anniversary and happy birthday to Cutie Pie.
