Happy birthday Big Vin!

Vinny is 10 years old today!!  Woo hoo!

What can I say about Vinny?  Vinny is my quirky, creative and imaginative, very bright, and frequently exasperating boy.  He drives his brothers crazy, and knows exactly which buttons to push.  He probably makes me want to pull my hair out more than the others, but also makes me laugh the most.  There is never a dull moment with Vinny around!  In the past I have talked about what a great singer he is (seriously, Pete and I can not carry a tune to save our lives.  Who knows where he gets it from)  and have shown what a great artist he is.  Turns out he is also a poet!

He wrote the above poem last year after our cat Buster died.  It brings a tear to my eye.

Last week (while he was supposed to be doing homework--  Omg, do not get me going on his unwillingness to do his homework!!)  he wrote the above poem just for fun. It reminded me a lot of a Shel Silverstein poem.  The sarcasm cracks me up and is classic Vinny.  Not many 10 year olds get sarcasm like he does.  Of course he has had a great teacher for that!

We love you to pieces Vinny and hope you have a birthday as fabulous as you are!!  Now go do your homework!
