It is Birthday Season… Hood #1 had a Birthday…

September 24th, 2017 · 6 Comments

And just like that we only have three teenagers in the house, because Hood #1 has crossed the rubicon and turned twenty last week. His siblings are somewhat in awe and frankly, I can’t believe it. But it is what it is…

How on earth do I have a child out of the teens, it really is crazy.

So Hood 1 is in College, and has a job that takes up lots of weekends… and we don’t nearly as much of him as we used to. This is good thing, he is ready to fly… and we cherish the time we do have with him so much more. The interesting thing about having grown up kids is that we do appreciate spending any time we do get with them so much more.

It does seem like time has flown…


Living with this complete nutter has made for the best times ever…


He has been the best big brother and has plenty of hidden skills, for instance he is a master sand castle builder and lego champion…

All those years spent reading and reading and reading means that he has a built in library of stories to tell anytime, anyplace…


Still a dreamer of big dreams…


This little chap has grown up in a flash… and it has been great being alongside him for the crazy ride…

    I’m a little bit horrified myself when I look at the baby with spiky hair, and then scroll back up and see the adult!

    Happy birthday to your oldest!
