I Was a Teenage Teenager

Tyler turned 13 yesterday...

Jeez. I don't feel old enough to have a teenager. Probably a byproduct of starting parenthood so young. Anyway, I don't have much to say, except... Jeez. We went to Red Robin, by Tyler's choice, for birthday dinner (and may have accidentally wandered into Cold Stone afterward).
Tyler's best friend since kindergarten came along, as did Kayleigh, my brother and stepmom.

After we got back, I zoomed off downtown to Gameworks for the first leg of JD's bachelor party. Couple Kilt Lifters in the bar there and some Tekken 5 had me sweating by the time I left to pick up my SIL at the Seattle Art Museum. Then home to tuck in Kayleigh. Tyler stayed up playing his new Spider Man videogame. Today I get to take my kids and 2 or 3 friends of Tyler's to the Spider Man 3 movie. And tomorrow I get to drive out to Whidbey Island to JD's wedding. Busy weekend ahead!

But of course. I'm now the parent of a teenager.

Those pesky child milestones are really good for making you feel older than you think you are or aren't. My daughter just graduated from USC a week or two ago and that is a little daunting.

Yes, I AM an old man. Now.

Welcome to my world TD, it's not for the faint of heart and frankly, the only thing that makes you feel older than your own kids getting older are OTHER people's kids getting older!

Love ya,

Get used to wearing that seatbelt - it's my most worn accessory.
