buon compleanno, il mio ometto!!
dear Little Man, my crazy world-traveling meteorologist in the making...yesterday you turned 14. how can it be that my baby, the *baby* is now taller than his momma?? really, your name should be Not-So-Little-Man! every single day is a wild ride with you...from 6 am math lessons (at your request!) to tornado chasing, there is never, ever a dull moment around here. and dad & i are loving every minute of it! i cannot believe you will start high school later this year...time for the serious science that you soak in like a sponge.may your rain gauge be full, may your radar detect awesome skies (i know our definitions of 'awesome skies' differ a bit!), may your forecast be bright...now pack your bags for that visit with M., the shuttle launch & the cruise...andiamo, ometto!!! love, your momma :)
