6 years ago

Is it possible for a person to age 20 years in a 6 year span?  I think so.  The reason is  6 years ago today our son, Derek Jordan Zelazoski, was born.  Some highlights of those 6 years:
  • Colic
  • Crawling into bed with us 2000 nights out of the 2190 nights of his life
  • Turning the whole bathroom into one big splash park everytime he takes a bath
  • Watching 2000 episodes of SpongeBob Squarepants.  (Or watching 50 episodes of SpongeBob Squarepants 40 times each)
  • Closing his bedroom window too many times to count during the winter because he likes to play with opening it
  • Scrubbing permanent marker off his body till the skin almost comes off with it
  • Bringing every stick in a 6 block area home with him everytime we go for a walk......and then leaving them in the lawn for me to hit with the lawn mower
  • See above but substitute rocks for sticks
  • Potato chip bags opened in a way that you would swear they were opened by a bear
  • Little plastic army guys, or worse yet, LEGO's, everywhere and they all seem to move under your feet when making your way to the bathroom at the dark
  • Saving the world day after day after day since they age of two on the Playstation(Ratchet and Clank)\
Yes, it is possible to age 20 years in 6.  But, that's o.k.  As the song goes, someday I'm gonna miss this.  Its been a  great 20/6 years .  Happy Birthday, Derek!!!!
