Yep. That’s right. On April 5th I became the mother of an eleven-year-old. (It’s all about me, of course.)
This grand event was celebrated by going roller skating with his siblings and as many friends as we had extra seat belts in the van.
Sometimes watching was as much fun as skating. The DJ even let the younger brother request a song for the birthday boy. It was the Duke’s of Hazzard Theme Song.
Not much of a cake man, he asked for birthday doughnuts this year.
And he asked, in order to make it “really special,” if he could serve everyone off of my wedding dishes. These are beautiful pottery dishes thrown by a dear friend of mine, which we registered for in place of china for our wedding.
Of course, I said yes, and then told him what really makes it special is that we are celebrating him.
