Since I will be gone on our son Daniel's thirteenth birthday, I wanted to take the opportunity today to tell him "Happy Birthday!"
This will be the first time in his life that I won't be with him on his birthday, so it has made us both a little sad; even though he is turning thirteen, he is still my baby.
Daniel looks just like Shannon. He has dark hair, dark eyes, and an olive complexion. And since the age of ten, he has also had a little bit of dark "facial" hair. After seeing Napoleon Dynamite for the first time(of many), we all got tickled thinking Daniel looked a little bit like Pedro. Daniel would joke that he was the only sixth grader starting to grow a mustache like Pedro.
So that being said, I will share with you a funny thing that happened last week concerning his birthday, and he has given me full permission to share it with you. (As long as he had final approval of the picture that I posted, of course.)
Anyway, we have been receiving a lot of free samples at our house for all types of products lately, thanks to information from Michele at My Blessings from Above. (Thanks, Michele!) We have received everything from garbage bags to shampoo and conditioner samples. So last week when Matthew brought the mail in, we saw that we had received another "sample." But this sample had Daniel's name on it, and it said, "For Your 18th Birthday!" on the box.........But like I told you, Daniel is turning 13.
Daniel got so tickled when he opened the box, because this is what he found inside.
It was a travel size shave gel and razor. Notice the shirt he had on as well.....That was not planned(he was wearing this shirt when the mail came), but it definitely made the razor and shave gel even funnier.
We don't know what or who caused the birthday mistake, but it made for a funny thirteenth birthday memory. I'm glad I was still home to share it with him.
