It’s Chef Boy “R Mine’s 25th birthday today.
Until he was 19, I hung balloons over his crib or bed in the middle of the night so he could wake to a visible reminder that the new day was his birthday.
Once he moved out-of-state this birthday ritual proved more challenging. Most years I managed in one way or another though not always over his bed. This year I’m relying on a florist to at least get to his porch. Twenty-five balloons weighted by chocolate chip cookies are supposed to be delivered before noon today.
I’ve said it before – the day he was born was the best day of my life.
