What would you do if I sang out of tune?


Today is my sons thirteenth birthday. He is thirteen years old. Crazy.

Being his dad has been quite the adventure. Everything from figuring out how in the hell to be a dad in the first place, to reading The Hobbit at bedtime and doing all the voices, to telling him his grandfather – his best friend – had passed away three days after his 8th birthday. He has, through it all, been a little Buddha. And I am so incredibly proud of the young man he has become.

Based on the reaction (or overreaction) to some of my posts I have decided to not share too many personal things, especially in regards to my son. I just wanted to mark this day and celebrate him for the amazing young man he is and always has been.


Happy Birthday Monkey.

Love dad.
