Happy Birthday Furr!

Twenty-two years ago today (ha ha Cathy - not days...that would be pretty insane eh?!) a sweet little bundle of bubbly joy named Christopher (also known as topher and furr) arrived in my life.

When the Dr. asked me when I wanted to have Chris (as it was going to be c-section) I told him "the day after Christmas." To me, the day after Christmas was a depressing day. All the family gatherings were over with and the excitement was gone. The year 1986 was going to be different for me because I was going to get the best present ever! My baby!

I had no idea if I was having a boy or a girl, but during delivery I heard the Dr. say "we have a boy here!" What a lovely baby boy I had!

Always happy, always giggling, always smiling (and flirting!). He was and still is irresistible!

Children grow.........and sometimes have a hard time finding their dreams

But I will always be there for Chris to help him in any way I can to realize his dreams.


Happy Birthday Furr. Your mom loves you with all her heart and soul. I'm also the luckiest mom in the world!!

Happy belated birthday to your babyboy! It goes by quickly doesn't it? This summer my twin boys will be teanagers, the big 13! LOL! This may sound funny but sometimes I look at them and think WOW, I have twins, and wonder how I managed it all!

Anyway hope he had a wonderful day!
