Usually every Sunday, I recount a story about my son Sebastian who, ever since he was able to speak, has the ability to utter some of the funniest one-liners without even knowing it. As many of you know, Sebastian’s older brother, Nathan, is a fabulous kid and does not get the recognition he deserves.
He is witty, funny, and one of the most intelligent kids I have ever known (yes, I am biased, but I was also a high school teacher for ten years, so there is some basis for that claim). And, as you can tell from the photo below, he is one handsome devil (luckily, he gets his looks from his mother).
Today is Nathan’s fourteenth birthday and even though he is going through some tough teenage situations (choosing a high school, wondering why his “friends” think he is “weird”, experiencing his first relationship rejection, etc.) he sure did make his father proud when he said all he wanted for his birthday was a new bike.
So Happy Birthday Nathan! You are truly one-of-a-kind and your mother and I would not have it any other way….
