And Braveheart Traded His Kilt For a Tutu . . .

You guys would really need to start a club. Seriously boy, you are the most enthralling blend of testosterone driven thrill-seeking and hilarious adventurer of Katie’s dress up closet I could have imagined. Today, on your second birthday, here are ten things I love about you:

#1: One minute you’re auditioning for Bruce Willis’ replacement in Die Hard 5 . . .

. . . . and the next you’re insisting that your toenails be the exact shade of bubble gum pink Katie just painted hers. (non-toxic polish, of course!)

#2: You’ve reclassified football as FEETball

It makes more sense to me, too:)

#3: You love to “chop” veggies for dinner

Granted, it’s more like bludgeon them into unusable pulp with a butter knife, but I can see you’re well on your way to knowing how to pamper your wife with a homecooked meal.

#4: You yell “butt!” in public places

You mean button, but it sure does make for some interesting conversations

#5: You kiss your sisters boo-boos

Whether you caused them or not :)

#6: Though you’re willing to learn our names for things

. . . every item that can be remotely repurposed as a tool is called a “hammer GO!!

#7 You were born the full moon

And I love everything about your story

#8: You use my arm as a construction zone while nursing

Complete with toy cars, bulldozers, and sound effects

#9: You’re clever

You know we hate for you to fall asleep in the car right before naptime, so you always pretend to konk out. Too bad your smirk gives you away!

#10: And despite what I’ll say on your wedding day . . .

It actually **is** adorable that you once hid my credit card in a jar of nut butter and routinely steal my carrot peeler for your “projects.”

And best of all . . .

You are mine, and we got to share these moments . . .

And Just In Case You Missed It . . .

Here is the first year!


Between the innocence of babyhood and the dignity of manhood, we find a delightful creature called a boy.

-Alan Beck, 1949

    Aw, my four (soon to be five) year old manchild is the same. Hollering and practicing ninja moves, all with painted toenails. He also does the pretending to fall asleep in the car thing…
