On this day seventeen years ago Susan became a mom.

Susan's son, age 3.25 years:
You stink, mom

Regarding a 4th birthday present:
He's a nice fish and a very good swimmer

Age 4.75:
Mom, it's so tricky to be good

Preschool note sent home by Miss Linda:
Sean was in time out many times today for spitting in his friends' faces

Age 5 sez canoonan when he means knish

In first grade:
Eating is gooder than learning because it makes you live.
How can learning make you LIVE?

First grade report card, 2nd trimester:
Sean continues to exhibit excessive talking. This can hurt him academically as he does not often listen to assignments. He often finishes last due to talking.

Question, unknown age:
Except bombs, what can explode?

Age 7.75 at the dinner table:
But mommy, I've already had enough bad stuff today
then crying:
It's the horriblest squash in the world!

Age 10, upon seeing a picture of Klansmen:
Why are they dressed like Hershey Kisses?

Age 16.99:
I want a Funfetti cake for my birthday

I love how you chronicled your journey together!

Funfetti is the only way to go - Sean knows it!

I'm so impressed that you kept a record of his wit and wonderings through the years. How organized are you!
Did you present him with his life in quotes?

The kid is only interested in getting lunch money & a ride to wrestling practice.
