Today my nephew turns 20. Did you know I have a nephew? Meet Joseph.
Awwww. Cute, huh? You know the saying, the squeaky wheel gets the grease?
Can you spot the squeaky wheel?
“You’re a very silly pirate. That marker is permanent! Muh ha ha.”
Sigh. It must be tough being the youngest. How did this poor, sweet child MAKE it to 20? Did I mention he was sweet?
He’s been blessed with a good nature. Which leads you to overlook the fact that he has a mischievous streak. In fact, saying he has a “streak” is like saying Arizona has a “hole”. You know, as in the Grand Canyon? My family is not big on travel. Like the time he showed us a blister and said he was bitten by a spider. Just as we were about to take him to the hospital he remembered that he MIGHT have touched a light bulb.
Who could be mad at that face?
Ummm. Yeah, masks are not a good idea. It reminds me of the time he and his friends found a hundred dollar bill on his dad’s dresser and decided to take it to the store so they could split it 3 ways. He was only 8 or 9. Still, I admit it was not the right thing to do. He probably should have been punished.
Awwww. What was I saying? I can’t remember.
Oh yeah, like that time he found his friends spray painting…
Never mind. This could go on all night.
Happy Birthday, Joseph! I love you!
