Happy Birthday, Parker
Today is my son Parker's birthday. He is 39 years old. Could this be the last year of his youth?
It was so nice of them to stage the Olympics in honour of his day. Sports buff that he is I imagine he will be watching a lot of it this coming week.
Parker is married to his high school girl friend, Sandra and they have three lovely children, Dylan, Olivia and Travis. (10,9,8)
After five years in the United States living near his mother, they returned home where he has become a teacher in the local high school. They are living the middle class town life I have tried to get away from. It seems we have less influence on our children that we think. Parker seems happy and successful which make me satisfied and proud of him and of myself for my efforts at parenting seem to have paid off.

He was a big baby at 10 pounds, 2 oz. So he never was a wee lad you had to be so careful in handling. His mother delivered him in just a few hours. She could have been a breeder but in the end she had no more children. It was an exciting day for us and our small circle of friends in Boston.
