Nolan joined the Double Digits Club today. Where the heck have the last 10 years gone?
In the blink of an eye, this little baby we brought into the world is now a 10-year-old kid about to go into the fifth grade. In another of those blinks will he really be 20 and in college? Hard to fathom!
As is often the case with our kids, the celebration was stretched out over a few days. It started back on July 4 with our first trip to the new Yankee Stadium. The tickets were actually a Christmas gift from Kris’ folks, but we decided to time our trip close to his birthday and bought him an extra souvenir while we were there.
Last night we took him out to dinner at the restaurant of his choice. He picked Red Robin.
Tonight we had dinner with my mom and his cousin Louis. Nolan requested a Boston cream pie for his cake.
I think he had a good day today. When he was going to bed he asked how much older I was. When I told him I had 28 years on him Nolan remarked that he had a lot to do before he reached that age -- middle school, high school, college, finding a job. I advised him to just take life one day at a time.
That’s how we’ve done things so far. Day 1 of the next decade starts tomorrow.
