The Boy™ turns 5!

Family Life75 words1 minutes to read

In September 2004, my wife came in from the bathroom and announced to all of us sitting in the living room that she was pregnant. Fast-forward to today, and my son is turning 5 years old.


It’s been a wild 5 years so far, and he’ll probably even live another 5 years before I kill him for one thing or another. Have a happy birthday, son, and I hope you enjoy your new bike! :)
