Today my younger son turns 13. So from now until next March 19, I am the proud mother of two teenagers.
I’ve got it easy–the older one is off at college and has already moved out, so I’m not actually living with two teenagers. But I do have two teenage sons, and I’m bursting with pride in them.
Timothy’s Dad sent him a Wii for his birthday. I like the way it makes playing video games a more physical experience! I’m going to have to try it some time myself–I could use some exercise.
Tim also has a thing for donuts. When he was very small, we had Dilbert’s Desktop Games on our computer. He’s the only 3-year-old I’ve ever heard of who pretended to be “Techno-Bill.” In the game, the characters would chant, “Gotta get more donuts! Gotta get more donuts!” I am convinced that phrase is hard-wired deep in Timothy’s brain.
So–in his online searches, he discovered the intriguing donut shop, The Fractured Prune. It looks like there’s one near a local comic book shop, so we will make a pilgrimage today or tomorrow. I think he’ll have a fun birthday.
