Most recently my son, Nicholas or Nick, celebrated his 15th birthday this past Sunday. This past year he has grown and changed so very much. He is now taller than me, had a deeper voice, has the need to shave occasionally and has matured by leaps and bounds! While middle school was a virtual nightmare with silly detentions and calls from the dean about face painting and overzealous talking, high school has been relatively smooth and uneventful. Nick has been making good grades, playing sports, making friends and behaving in a positive and acceptable manner....he's 15, not a saint...ha ha.
So we celebrated with a few small gifts, and dinner out. His choice was The Cheesecake Factory and it was as usual, yummy. We took desert to go, but they brought him a mini sundae to sing and embarrass him....he loved it!!
