Alas, I can no longer proudly announce that I'm the mother of teenaged sons. Oooohhhh, the grass is always greener on the other side! To be truthful, though, I am delighted to be the mother to two wonderful young men and step-mother to two other wonderful young men. Boys! Men! Yikes! Aswim in testosterone.
My favorite part of N.'s birthday dinner was hanging out with his friends. I rarely see them anymore, and they are hilarious and bright and full of life. And there was chocolate cake with ganache, and vanilla & coffee ice cream. Oh! Oh!
