Yep. That's right. Our son of 3 years is 12. He would tell you that he's quite capable of everything an 18 year old is but his parents would probably have to put a few qualifiers on that.
He is all about his birthday parties....yes....parties. Tonight it was Red Lobster, Friday it's a sleep over and Sunday is birthday cake with more family. As Eli frequently screams, "It's everything I WANT!" for Lucas this week.
I'm pretty sure the diners around us at Red Lobster were wishing they'd gone to McDonald's because Luke was in fine form. From telling Mike, repeatedly, that he was old, telling Alison he would find her a boyfriend, to telling Sydney that she was marrying one of our friends sons...in front of Sydney's boyfriend then telling us his view that in all couples the man was older than the woman, the man would die first and the ladies are always right. What can I say....I may have influenced that last opinion. Then he proceeded to tell the friends that went with us that the man was very lucky cause he had a good wife....he hasn't lost the ability to schmooze the women.
I can't believe how much this kid has grown, it's great, it's sad but most of all a joy to see him growing and happy. Happy Birthday Lucas!
