Today is our son Tommy’s 11th birthday! He is our 5th child and 4th son. He was our first child to take us past the 4 children that we originally thought we would have (back when we thought we were in charge).
Tommy started out life giving his mother a hard time – he was my only C-section, as he refused to turn around the right way (even after being turned – he wouldn’t stay that way!). Tommy often jokes that he just refused to be born – he wasn’t ready to join the crowd.
He got all of his trouble-making out of the way early, though, because ever since then he has been a total sweetheart.
Tommy inherited his dad’s calm, laid-back temperament, his great-grandfather’s big blue eyes and his mama’s dimples.
He is a very smart boy with a wonderful sense of humor. He is very helpful and does so with a servant’s heart.
Some of his favorite things are – riding his bike, playing sports, watching movies and old t.v. shows (on dvd), reading books (especially Hardy Boys) and playing games and Legos.
Tommy is a good student, whose favorite school subject is Math. He likes to copy poetry and is a very good speller. He is always quick to finish his schoolwork and doesn’t usually need much help with it.
Tommy is kind, unselfish and a true friend to others. He is very special to us and a great blessing in our lives.
I love you, Missur Tom!!!
