10 Birthday Wishes

Our second son was born 10 years ago on this day.

Remember all the Y2K fuss during 1999 and all the what- if's for 2000.

Well because of all those what-if's I didn't really want him to make his debut on the 1st day of that year and thankfully he didn't. He decided to wait seven days later to give me those few hours of pure misery before he made his appearance.

He weighed in at a whopping 8 pounds and 11 1/2 ounces. The biggest of all three of my children.

Funny thing is...he is my smallest child now a days. You know, the one that you have to make eat food.

He's also the one with the softest heart, the biggest brown eyes (just like his Daddy) and the grin that just makes you smile.


I asked him this question tonight.

If you could have any 10 wishes then what would they be?

1. A laptop ( I informed him that if anyone in this house would get a laptop it would be me.)

2. Rip-Rider 360

3. An XBOX 360 Points Card

4. A phone card for an old cell phone that he was given. ( I told him he doesn't go anywhere that he would need a phone yet. He's only 10 :))

5. He wished that his little sister would leave him alone so he could play.

6. No school for another week...More Snow Days!

7. Three ...not two, but 3 Lego Build a Sets

as for 8, 9 & 10...he's still trying to think of them.

Happy 10th Birthday Gage!
Love, Mom

What a cutie! Come on mom, spoil him rotten this birthday!!! Any kid that can't come up with 10 gifts really deserves some spoiling! tee hee.. although maybe putting *3* Lego sets in one wish is kind of hedging his bets? lol...
