And you've never "seen" a dragon?? Maybe it's because I started them so young.

I have you both beat. I have 17. And that includes 6 great grand kids. I have a great granddaughter that is old enough to make me a great-great grandmother if she doesn't stay out of trouble. My oldest grandchild in 35. No kids for him yet. Youngest gchild will be three July 7th. Quite a spread.

My maternal grandmother had you all beat. Last time I counted (while she was still alive) there were 36. Of course, she had 12 kids who reached adulthood.

My best friend's son just turned 17. I have been a part of this young guy's life since he was 6 months old. He has gone through the stages of "no I love your cakes but it is kind of juvenile now that I am a teenager" and "I still think of you as my second Mom in private but I will ignore you around my friends".

Well, yesterday I finally was able to get him his birthday gift 3 weeks late via his Mom. All we gave him was a card and a Starbuck's gift card for $16.50 (an inside joke that I always mention on his birthday that I have known him for 6 months less than his age).

My smile came when he called last night to thank me for hemming his shorts and for the gift! We actually TALKED! He told me he loved the amount and it was good to have a card so he could take his friends for coffee and hang out! We chatted for about 15 minutes with him volunteering that he did really good on his report card (6 A's and 2 B's) and inviting me to their soccer game tonight - a playoff semi-final.

The biggest smile was as we said goodbye and he said "Thanks again MLo I am really happy you have been part of my life". MLo is a phrase the youth group coined for me short for Mother Laurie (not to be confused with JLo ).
