Happy Happy To My Ty

It's My Tyler's 19th birthday today. This will be a hallmark day...the first (of many I'll guess) birthday that I will not actually BE with one of my offspring on the anniversary of their birth.
He couldn't come home...something about classes and work. Sheesh. Way to be a responsible grown-up, my boy.
We couldn't go down there....something about him being too busy with classes and work...and the price of gas for us. Way to be good money-managing role models, parents!?

Anyway. We sent him a package and cards. I called him at 8:07 this morning...the exact moment he drew his first breath. I'd warned him so he didn't screen my call :)

Our house just isn't the same without him in it. He possesses a quick, rapier sharp wit. He sees the world out of completely different eyes than I do. He makes me laugh (unexpected, coke spewing out of the nose laughter) like no one else can. He has taught me everything I know about unconditional.....well, everything.

The day of his birth was a joyous one. He was very much wanted.

I love you My Ty. I'm proud of the man you're in the process of becoming. Know that your face is missed today!
