This all sounds so alien; interesting, but alien. Do you look at him in a mixture of love and confusion, or do flash flash revolution and skim boarding make sense when you are living them?

But congratulations to you all on being with each other for fourteen years.

Happy Birthday Youngest!

My wish for you is that the future holds a visit to Japan where you can eat tonkatsu to your heart's content.

(I did and it was incredible - forget the sushi - tonkatsu was our best friend in Tokyo).

Happy Birthday, Youngest!

BB, do you find it strange that at THE VERY TIME you were writing this post, my two children, together in Nagoya this week, were being treated by a close Japanese family friend to a tonkatsu dinner? NO JOKE!

He sounds so exotic to me--Many Happy Returns of the Day and if I could type that in Japanese, I totally would! What a cool kid.

Happy birthday, Youngest! You definitely rock.

btw, my #2 son turned 19 yesterday. I wanted him to be born on the 17th (Syttende Mai, Norwegian Constitution Day; my grandmother came from Norway) but my OB only did surgery on Tuesdays, so the 16th was The Day.

bb, does the subtitle of his favorite book freak you out? Cuz it does me.

Cool list.

If somewhat incomprehensible to we olde folks.

My 15-year-old's list would be totally different. But just as incomprehensible.

Happy Birthday to your youngest.
