Happy Birthday to you!!!!!
DS turns 18 today--Precisely at 5:10pm to be exact. He has gone from a long, skinny baby, to a long, skinny young man. He has always had a sense of humor and a good "ear", even before he could talk. He used to sit in his car seat on top of the dining room table and mimic the "red alert" sound from Star Trek, exactly on pitch while I cooked dinner.
As a small child, he used to naively eat just about anything I put in front of him, including tofu. Later, when he learned that not everyone's mother makes them eat such things, his tastes "developed" to be more in line with most of America's. Today, he prefers what he calls the "Anti-Atkins" diet--plenty of carbs.
Today, he plays the guitar, bass guitar, clarinet, writes his own music and sings. He will attend college in the fall majoring in computer gaming technology.
Friday he plans on getting his ear pierced. (Shhhhh!!! Don't tell his dad, LOL!)
