Ten years ago today I was 18, holding my newborn baby, Noah. It’s amazing how much has changed since then, Chumbawamba was huge then, and now they’re not, it takes a lot of getting used to. I had moved out when I was 17, and was working for a temp agency. I had no idea what I wanted to do for a career, and I hadn’t even started school yet. Looking back, I feel very lucky for how my life has turned out so far, and I’m even more proud for who my young man is becoming. He’s very precocious, funny and outgoing, but also sensitive, creative and empathetic. He’s definitely a people person, which sometimes gets him in trouble at school, but I think his personality will take him far in life. So happy 10th birthday to Noah!
We went to our favorite Japanese restaurant, Takahashi…tempura, sushi, yakisoba, then DQ for blizzards (cake/party tomorrow)…yeah, I’ll definitely need to go the gym tomorrow!
