Mammaries, Like The corners of My Boobs

I'm sorry - that was a completely miseading title, wasn't it? I'm a firm believer in paraphrasing sappy ass songs, and that is one of my personal bests. Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to sing the rest of it to you - it's somewhat blue (somewhat - ahahahahaha!), and I was actually going somewhere else with this post.

Ahem...!

It's hard to believe how fast time goes by. It was only last week, it seems, that I was holding my first born, freaking out over the immense responsibility I had taken on. And now, in the blink of an eye or two, it's 11 years later, and my little Professor is on his way to teendom. What the hell happened? I haven't gotten any older, how did he? At any rate, he's still one of my very favorite people in the whole wide world, and not just because he lets me ramble on and on about the English Reformation and the Birth of Piracy in the New World ("I could just listen to you talk forever, Mom") What a delightful suck-up!

Happy Birthday Professor! (singing, "and many moooore!")

Why does this keep happening? They keep growing and changing and leaving. I don't get it.

I know exactly what you mean. With the possible exception of being unable to perform gymnastics I am exactly the same as the day I had her 13 years ago. Come to think of it I couldn't do gymnastics then either. Hope you all had a Happy Birthday!

Our first year went remarkably quick and I imagine they don't slow down! Happy Birthday to your boy!

I like using song lyrics as titles too.
