I have a Birthday Boy!

My oldest turns 14 tomorrow! 

Luckily, we gave up birthday parties about 4 years ago. We do parties at "special" ages now: 5 because this is the first year they are in school, 10 because it's double digits, 13 because this is officially the teenage year, 16 because you can drive, and then 18 because I can finally kick them out of the house!! (I will admit that I do like to throw one at 6 or 7 just because.)

On the "off" party years, the kids get to invite one friend to come over for the day and have dinner, play games, and just hang out. They love being able to invite that one special friend and it makes the party years that much more special. 

Back to my oldest. He was born 5 weeks early at 5 pounds 3 ounces. He was so tiny, I bathed him in the tiny bathroom sink. Now, he wear's a size 13 men's shoe and is just about 6 feet tall and he has another 6 or 7 years to grow! 

In two years he will be able to drive and in four years he can move out. 

I can't believe how fast the time goes and yet, not fast enough (because the boy has a serious attitude problem at times.)


  1. Nope sorry, I don't buy it. He is still 9 in my mind! But in the event that this is really true then I hope he has a good birthday!

  2. Happy birthdya Corey! Toni

  3. When checking out med school, this looks like an awesome place to begin your academic program! The True Blue Campus at St. Georges University.
