My Baby's in Double Digits

Griffin celebrated his 10th birthday on the 18th.
This summer, he has been so focused on obtaining the IPOD Touch, he decided to forgo the party in lieu of the cash payout.
Thank God. I don't know if I could have survived a sleepover party with 9 & 10 year old boys.
I'm still amazed at the amount of door slamming, running around & screaming that accompanies male tweens when 2 or more of them gather together:o
Anyway, Griff's actual birthday was pretty low key.
Nana brought over lunch and a birthday cookie cake. She stayed with the kids while I ran around trying to get Sydney's 9th grade schedule (which took a call to the doctor's office for proof of her Tetnus shot and 2 trips across town to her school).
That evening, HH took Reilly to get her schedule and to soccer practice while I accompanied Griff and his friend to Going Bonker's (a local indoor playground/arcade).
Later, we all gathered at the house with Aunt Debbie to sing Happy Birthday to Griffin and devour the cake.
I'm still reeling over the fact that I no longer have a child in single digits.
Can I really be that old????

10 Fun Facts About Griffin:
1. He loves the St. Louis Cardinals. Albert Pujols is his favorite athlete.
2. He loves music. We rarely see him without his IPOD (or now, IPOD Touch).
3. He's a TKD Ninja. He attends class at least 3 times a week and has been helping with a Tiny Tigers (preschoolers) class every Tuesday for the past year.
4. He's obsessed with Axe deodorant. Thank God for this... after running around, he definitely needs it!!!:)
5. His room is an absolute pigsty and this does not bother him a bit.
6. His favorite song is "Our Time Now" by Plain White T's.
7. He wears his retainers ALL. THE. TIME. I've never seen anything like it.
8. His handwriting is so tiny that we almost need a magnifying glass to read it.
9. His favorite applications on his IPOD Touch: The Fart Machine & Yo Mama (jokes).
10. He genuinely cares about others & is a great friend, brother & son. We LOVE Griff!!!!!
