Happy New Year

Friday, October 19, 2007


What age must you reach to become an adult to your mother? When does the term grown up fit your child?

I always see my children as beautiful newborns, delightful toddlers, inquisitive and creative children, laughing teenagers.

There are adults somewhere inside my kids. There is a man inside my son who is a tremendous father, a helpful friend, a talented singer, a hard worker, but as proud as I am of his achievements, I still look into his face and see that impish little boy. Yes, even today on his 37th birthday.



  1. Happy Birthday to Tandy.

    And, how can you have a son who is 37? I feel like we're the same age.
