Happy Birthday Erik!

Today is my middle son’s birthday, and day two of our three birthdays in six days event. Erik is seventeen today, which means he can finally watch R-rated movies. (As if he hasn’t already been seeing them.)

Erik is a stresser. He stresses about everything; school, sports, video games, you name it. That said, he also does exceedingly well in school – he earned First Honors for the semester – is a very good lacrosse player and was an amazing soccer player – and he dominates video games. I assume he gets the stress from me, since I stress about anything and everything.

The Chinese Wuhan Virus has taken its toll on him – he lost an entire lacrosse season in 2020, and lacrosse practices now are often virtual – but he’s making the best of it.

The boy is wicked smaht, is very active – he goes for ten-mile bike rides often – and is, for the most part, a terrific son. I sincerely hope he enjoys his gift, as it took me forever to find.

Happy birthday, Erik. We love you!

  1. Happy birthday, Erik! In many ways you sound like my daughter. She’s a type A personality, wicked smaht, and it’s her birthday today, too. (And her brother’s name is Erik.)
