How Do You Spell Happy Birthday?

21 Nov

The November flurry of birthdays comes to a close today as we celebrate Thomas, born on the Monday before Thanksgiving.  Sometimes we falter when asked the actual date of his birth.  Tricky Thanksgiving, always moving around and causing us problems, is at fault.  But this year his actual birthdate reflects the day we always remember.

In a ploy to get my newly minted six-year-old to write this blog post for me, I asked Thomas how he would describe himself to someone who didn’t know him at all.  His answer:

I would just say, “T-H-O-M-A-S.”  But, only to people who can spell.

So much for my plagiarized blog post.  He is a bit much to describe with mere words.  In addition to the words, you need some non-stop singing, rambunctious wiggling, and intense cuddling.

That’d about do it.  We love you, Thomas Thomas.  Happy Birthday.

    Happy birthday Thomas!

    Christina, I had a dream last night that your house had a two with red armchairs at the end of each row of books. I think you should work on that.

    A two story library, that is. With red armchairs.

      Absolutely. I want to live there. How did you know that I sometime secretly daydream about moving into East Grand Rapids KDL?

      Oh, and after Christmas Craziness is over (because I’m afraid it’s already begun) we have to do the scanning get-together!
