They Grow Up So…well, eventually

The Boy really surprised me this Father’s Day. Part one of the surprise is that he actually remembered the day, although that may be thanks to Kat. The next part of the surprise is how nice a gift he got me. It was relevant and not cheap (Calphalon bakeware to replace some of the cheaper things banging around in the kitchen). Finally, we were at the local media store (books are such a small part of their stock) and he ran off to buy a t-shirt. He used that t-shirt to wrap the pans! Not only generous, but ingenious as well. And the shirt was Doctor Who themed, so bonus points there.

All around, I could not have asked for a better recognition that I’ve got some sort of place in his heart. Maybe this parenting stuff is working after all.

Happy to see a post from you! How old is the boy nowadays? Are you on FB?

He's 12 now. Yeah, I do microblogging on FB (andysoc1al) now, but I do post longer bits here every month or so. I seem to have much less to say in recent years. :-)

And someone whose last LJ post was in April 2011 has NO room to take this "where you been" attitude. :-)

I know I know I know! I'm so bad with LJ nowadays - and really, I have nothing to say, other than what I mostly say on FB! Wow...12 already. That makes me feel SO damn old. Just. Wow!
