“How come you never write about ME?”

December 30, 2008 at 8:00 pm 1 comment


Today we are launching a new category: How Come You Never Write About Me?  We get this question from time to time.  Feel free to submit ideas – in question form, of course.

Our first entry under this category is our “adopted” 20-year-old son, Joe.  Joe and our firstborn met in 6th grade, when he moved to town and joined the soccer team my husband was coaching.

While he was a little shy, he gradually became more comfortable at our house.  It was sort of like getting a woodland animal to trust you: you feed it and talk soothingly to it; eventually it makes its way onto your porch, and you hope that it will someday eat out of your hand.  Joe doesn’t eat out of our hands, but he eats a lot out of our fridge.

Joe’s voice changed before the other boys’, and I remember one day saying, “Who is that man up in #1’s room??”  Fortunately, it was just our little Joe with his new, deep man-voice.

Joe comes from a family background that is quite different from ours.  That is, he has one sibling, who is out of college, a dad with a disability, and a hard-working mom.  They are awesome, and they have created a pretty awesome son.

I was hoping to find the youtube link of Joe’s teen idol video, but for now, this will have to suffice.
