12 years ago today, my son was born.

The amniocentesis said one thing – girl – and the ultrasound said another – boy. Yes, the 99.4% accurate amnio was wrong, so we really didn’t know what was coming.

I’m not into “pink” or “blue” when it comes to clothing, decorating or life choices, and we had names picked out either way, but we were, um, MILDLY curious.

He’s a handful, but he’s the sweetest thing, and he adores his sister Nancy.

Happy Birthday, son.
