THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!
MM, thank you for your always-kind good wishes!
Cy, thank you, and I hope your seminars went well!
EllenA, yes, it has gone far too quickly, and early gratz back to you and your ds!
Kat, what a way with words! "Diapers and teething to double digits." It seems like time is speeding up, doesn't it? Thank you, too, for sharing your journey.
Z, you are such a treasure. I really hope I get to meet you. We go to Detroit every year, so I'll have to find out how far away you are, and add on a side trip to meet you and your fabulous boys! And yes, I do hope we'll talk about grandkids here!
WCL, thank you for sharing about your GRAND gkids and for your kind thoughts!
Omissy, thank you so much. (The low's I referred to are in my siggy.) I really hope to swing by your area next year and meet you and the boys, if you'd like that.
JM, thank you for your good wishes, and for the videos! I haven't heard of this youtuber, but he is awesome, and I'll follow him. I haven't shown the clips to ds yet, but he will enjoy these. Hey, how far are you from Detroit?
Sabina, thank you! We had a family birthday on his actual day, and last weekend, he had a small party at a gym. They climbed towers and went into a bouldering "cave" (made of plywood, with things to grab or hang from). Gifts from us and from family: remote-control plane (already crashed now), snapcircuit set, diy robot kit, lego lighthouse, scribblenauts, some kind of blob wii game, more skylanders (wii game), 10 Days in the USA (board game), some comic books about science including the physics of amusement parks (he was not amused). We are also giving him cash in the amount of what he did not spend out of his piggy bank over the previous year, to encourage more saving and thrift.
Phoebe, I tell that to my ds, too. Recently had him sit on my lap -- ouch! My bones didn't like it.
(((Adee, Alli, Alex, Mo, MargieD, Meg, Gail, EllenNJ, Pink, Kenny, Cheryl, ((Renata)), Bethlyn))), thank you all for the kind birthday and anniversary greetings!
Lillian, what a great idea. I hope we can find a way.
JKL, this is a great age for a pet! We've always had a dog or two, but this year, ds really became a kind pet-lover.
