8 years ago I was in college and trying to decide what to do with my life. I was busy planning my 21st birthday party and hanging out with friends. Little did I know that mere minutes away from my home a momentous event was happening that would forever change my life. 8 years ago today my Husband held his newborn son for the very first time.
I met The Boy three and a half years later, after Crazy Eyes had joined the mix and The Hubs and their Mom had parted ways. I remember telling The Hubs (then boyfriend) that I didn’t think The Boy liked me. He was a tough nut to crack. Most three year olds are and he’s always been more shy than his sister. He warmed up to me by the end of our visit and he stole my heart in the process. He’s my little buddy. My first baby. The child I chose to love.
He loves that I write about him in my blog so I thought I’d interview him.
What are your favorite things? Your (my) shrimp fried rice, robots, Spiderman, LEGOs, and playing with my sisters.
What do you want to be when you grow up? I want to join the Airforce but if Mommy won’t let me I’m going to be a fireman or an architect…or a super spy…or an inventor scientist. I’m not sure.
What subjects do you love in school? Reading and math.
What’s your favorite color? Red.

What should people know about you? I’m cool and funny and smart.
What do you like most about yourself? That I’m like Daddy.
I love this kid. He really is cool and funny and smart. He has the biggest heart and makes sure the people he loves know it. I’m so glad that I get to be his Deedee. I wouldn’t trade him for the world.
