HAPPY BIRTHDAY JON
Just when did my little Jonny get to be 28 years old and a man?
This is how I will always picture him in my heart. He has always been a hard working, happy guy!
He was very independent and would balance out joy & reward with punishment when he was told not to do something.
One day I found him starting to cross the street without adult supervision.
"Jon, if you cross the street without asking, you will have a time out"
After considerable consideration and weighing the two very carefully....
"OK mom, I'll cross the street and take my time out!"
And then he went skipping out the front door!
But kids do grow up and Jon has grown into a caring, loyal, interesting man. (but he will always be my baby!)
Can you just see the sweetness pouring out of this little boy

Thank you Jon for being a big part of our lives and reminding us to play more and laugh often!!
