Ten Going on Eleven

This is what Ian looked like even before we had him:

He was one week old and still in Korea, then. That was November, 1999. He would arrive at Newark airport in mid-March 2000.

Tomorrow, he'll be 11.

Tonight, Teh 'Bride will let him know that one of his birthday presents is that he will be allowed to sleep in our room tonight (on a cot) so he can wake there on his birthday.

Believe it or not, this is still something he loves to do and will be very excited to know he'll be allowed to for his birthday. He may even like it better than the pitchback that is going to be his main present.

This is Ian now:


  1. You're killin' me here! Still mothing mean to say.

  2. SteveQ - I'll give it a try.

    A pitchback?! This is just your way to avoid playing catch with your son. Just another substitute parenting device.

    He'll probably grow up to be a deviant and blame it on an absentee father.

  3. Nothing, of course, not "mothing." Mothing Mean is the sequel to Breaking Bad.
