a note to my son on his 12th birthday
Happy Birthday, DJ.
Thank you for every smile, every laugh, every hug and for being the kind of kid who is never embarassed to kiss his parents his good night.
Thanks for letting me be the mother of the kid about whom everyone says "I want one just like him."
I love you, kid. You make me proud. I hope you make you proud. Learn to appreciate yourself a bit more. And remember, girls only want boyfriends who have great skills. So get started on those nunchuck skills, bowhunting skills, computer hacking skills...
May all your dreams come true, DJ. May you be a rock star, an all-star third baseman and a certified zombie expert in your lifetime.
And may you get rich doing all those things so you can take care of your family later on.
