Happiness as Anarchy #49: The 1st Child

This small person turned 14 today. He’s pretty special and brings me much joy. We’ve spent the last three days hanging out together in the car taking him to mandolin workshops. He’s always been an old soul, a thinker and an observer. He’s cheeky, curious, funny, intelligent, creative and equally stubborn as his mother. We’ve been testing out this parent-child thing for a while and seem to be making it work without too many disasters. It’s hard to believe he’ll be an adult in four years, but I’m loving watching him grow up into a remarkable big human.
