The Big One-One


It doesn't seem possible that Brainy Boy has turned 11 today. He's turning out to be quite a kid. I overheard him talking to several family members who called to wish him a Happy Birthday and he told all of them, "Only 7 more years until I can vote!"

We are going to his beloved Red Lobster for dinner and then to Toys R Us and Barnes & Noble where he can spend the bulk of his birthday money. He opted for mostly cash rather than gifts because he wanted to see what a "spending spree" was like. He's been dreaming of several hardcover mega-sized Dilbert and Far Side comic books so I'm sure we'll be needing another bookshelf by the end of the night.

Wow, he is quite a guy and Happy Birthday Brainy Boy! I'll have to admit that when I was 11 years of age, voting was the farthest thing from my mind.

Enjoy your birthday dinner and spending spree, that should be lots of FUN!

He's already looking forward to voting??? Good for him! You must be raising him right!

How funny that he is counting the years until voting rather than driving!
btw- that's a lot of candy he is holding!

Happy Birthday to him - if he were here we could have a joint cousins party for him and Michael!

I hope he has a lot of fun shopping, I like those books too, funny stuff.
