Today is Drew’s birthday. I am officially the mom of TWO teenagers now. How is that possible? I don’t feel old enough to have two teens in my house! We woke him with our traditional rendition of “Happy Birthday” the way my mom used to sing it to us. Dave went and got him Dunkin Donuts for breakfast and he’s opened a few little presents.
He pulled out the advent calendar piece for the day….which was a yellow duck. Drew doesn’t know it but Dave plans it that way so that when the duck appears, it is like a Happy Birthday message coming from my mom.
It is Friday, so he’s off to school in a few minutes, but tonight, he is bringing some friends to a New Jersey Devils game to celebrate turning 13. He is so excited. Last year, he went to a game with my dad the night before his birthday and wound up on The NHL Network! He finds himself on that jumbo tron all of the time…I wonder if it will happen again tonight?!?!
Happy Birthday Drew!! You give us so many reasons to smile 🙂
