Here's me and Joseph the day Crystal brought him home from the hospital. You can see two-year-old Cameron in the background.
What birthday post would be complete without a picture from his first birthday? Look at that gorgeous blond hair and two little bottom teeth.
Here's Joseph now. He's very special to me. He was my first nephew. Of all the grandkids, Joseph is no doubt the most easygoing of them all. When the kids play, Joseph is usually the referee or the judge. He's definitely a moderator. I could see him becoming a diplomat or judge or something like that. He doesn't like all the arguing. He's a peacemaker. That's a very good trait, don't you think? He also has a very good sense of humor. I think those are things that will take him very far. Humor and peace.
He started 10th grade yesterday. It just doesn't seem right that all the kids are growing up so darn fast. Before you know it, I'll be dancing at his wedding.
And I bet that scares the bejeebies out of Joseph!
Happy 15th Birthday, Joseph! You hold a place in my heart saved just for you.
Okay. So we've had another crazy day at the Kelly house. Some thief got hold of our debit card number and has gone to another state on a little shopping spree. Jeff's got to go to the bank to take care of that. Luckily, our bank uses a detection service that monitors their account holders' debit card usage. They caught it. We won't be responsible for the charges, but will have to get new debit cards and so forth. I hate thieves. Why don't they just get a job?
Have y'all had to spend a small fortune on school supplies? WTCrap? Eight dollars for a three-ring binder. I mean, I know these are tough times, but come on. And Cam needed four of them. Then after going to three stores last night to find them, I bring them home and he says he doesn't need them. The teachers just put them on the list year after year. I go to two stores looking for notebook paper. When I give it to him, he tells me it's not the kind he likes. Say what? Oh, boy. I'll keep all of it because I'm sure he'll be asking for it in a day or so. That boy would rather give his mama a hard time than drink when he's thirsty. And I'm surprised that no one has come up with a notebook/spiral notebook for lefties. Poor Cam has to rest his wrist on those metal thingies. I remember when he was younger, his teachers would complain to me that his papers were always so ragged and the holes always torn on the left side. I had to inform them that wasn't exactly his fault, since he had to put his hand somewhere. Hmmmm. Now, he says he just tells them ahead of time. I'm sure he's not the only lefty in the class, but, you know, he's the one I care about.
Gotta work today, so better run. Hope y'all have a marvelous Tuesday!
