happy birthday to a boy who loves to see things float, sink, roll, and fly.
happy birthday to a boy who said, "mom, titanic is my favorite movie. seriously."
happy birthday to a little guy who has stuck with me through some interesting times.
happy birthday to a kid that debates me on every single subject i bring up: tv, sugar consumption, sprawl, gasoline, you name it.
happy birthday to teddy, who asks more questions about subjects that usually don't interest me and i don't know the answers to, but can usually look them up on the internet. (car, rocket, spaceship, ship, tugboat, train, and light rail sizes/dimensions/speeds/etc..)
and things like: which is stronger? a hurricane or a tornado?
teddy, you put up with a lot.
and i think you've lived more in five years than most your age.
you were born on a day just like today: pleasant and bright just before the rains.
you are a special boy, handsome and smart.
