"How old is he?"

I get asked this question ALL THE TIME. I probably get asked this question almost as often (but not quite) as this blog gets hit by searching Google for "banana poop". (I'm glad my blog has that kind of fame!)

Anyway, back to the question that everyone is dying to know. I'm going to answer it for you today-as long as you promise not to ask me again next week! And the answer is...

ONE YEAR OLD!!!

Holy Mackerel!!! When did that happen!? Well...today! I could go on and on all about Bug today, but that's what this whole blog is about, so you might as well search the archives and stay tuned for future stories. (Yeah, click that button on the right that says "Follow"!)

I will tell you some things though. For starters, my son's name isn't really Bug. Duh! I just refer to him as Bug on here to protect us. Although, any fraud or psychopath could probably figure out who we are anyway. Also, "Bug" is a term of endearment on my husband's side of the family. I almost never call the little guy Bug. Mostly I call him Beaner Wiener...or by his real name, of course.

Bug is my first born (and so far, only) child. He has those stereotypical first born traits already...like being totally independent. He is also 100% boy. But that may be a product of societal norms, fatherly expectations, etc. Actually, he does like to cuddle quite a bit, so maybe he is only 98% boy. Then again, he also like to eat dirt...hmmm...he's 100% boy (or at least 99.99%).

He's such a smart kid, and a total joy (except when he's not). He keeps me laughing every day. The tender emotions I feel when I think about my son give me teary eyes. Nothing could have prepared me for being a mother. It is such a powerful and mighty responsibility. I'm so glad I'm a mom to this fabulous child. And I look forward, with eager anticipation, to the many adventures and laments to come.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BEANER!




Hey, leave me alone! I'm allowed to put up a couple of pictures and brag on his birthday!
