21st Birthday

To: Max
From: Mom

Plan on getting a phone call from me on your BIRTHDAY. Have a great weekend. Nothing stupid. Turning 21 is not a right-of-passage. It's just, unfortunately, another year older...and then older...and older. Until YOU'RE 57. Then you lose track of how old you are. (I honestly do.)

Will never forget the mad, scrunched-up punim on your face when you were born. You were SO PISSED at having been woken up. And you're no different now. I am convinced that baby's personalties are revealed at birth. Kate's face was awake, eyes open and looking all around, taking it all in. Very excited at having just discovered the world.

Love you........Mom
