10 on the 10th

Today is my son's 13th birthday so I'm going to post 10 things I love about this boy.

  1. I love that when he was little he said "kank koo" for thank you.

  2. I love that he still had to be tucked in every night until he was at least 12.

  3. I love that he isn't embarassed to go skateboarding with his dad.

  4. I love that he can now set up his own tent and cook his own meal over a fire that he started.

  5. I love that when he was little he would tell people he had a brother and that brother's name was Grandpa.

  6. I love that he will still play Monopoly with me even though he now considers me an inferior opponent.

  7. I love that his best friends are his cousins. Cousins are very important when you are an only child.

  8. I love that in staring contests I can always make him laugh first.

  9. I love that he went to his first real concert (John Mellencamp) with his old mom and dad.

  10. I love that he plays the drums and guitar....just like his daddy.

Happy Birthday beautiful boy. I love you.

You have a handsome young man there! Happy Birthday!

I'm from Indiana originally, so it's always fun for me to find bloggers from there. It's nice to meet you!

That's so sweet! I have 9 year old boys, and I love that they still want me to tuck them in at night. Even if Dad does it, I must make an appearance for the good night kiss.

It tugs at my heart.

Oh, how sweet was this list???

I'm so glad you played along, Mary! Please tell your son that some lady named Meredith in Colorado is wishing him a happy 13th birthday!

Mary, this is a great list. Nice to "meet" you.

My son will be 13 in July. Doesn't the time just go by so quickly???

Happy Birthday to your wonderful son.

My little guy says thank-you the same way. Too cute!
Is #5 not the sweetest thing ever!
Great list. I may have to do this on my children's birthday months too.
