Picture A Day Challenge for 12/22/07

Happy Birthday to my 21 year old son!

My oldest child turned 21 today. It's been a somewhat bittersweet day because I'm so proud of the man he's become, but saddened by the fact that he's not my little baby anymore. He spent the first hours of his day where his night job as a spotlight operator at a dance hall where everyone wanted to buy him a drink. They apparently think it's great fun to get new 21 year-olds drunk. He was responsible and had nothing worse than a buzz. Whew!

DH's office manager had a birthday today as did her daughter. The daughter turned one today. She had a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese for her daughter and thought it would be fun to include our son. It was kind of fun seeing his name come across the monitor with his age when everyone else was celebrating 5, 6, 7, 8 years. He even had a cake with 21 candles! It was almost a fire hazard.

LOL Karen! See? No matter how old, they are still our babies at heart. :-)

Happy Birthday to your son! We went to Chuck E Cheese for the first time this past summer, and I'd have my next b-day there if I could .. and I'm in my 30's :P. :D
