Classic Julio

Last year I had a kid named Julio. Smart, witty . . .all around great. And a total ladies' man. He was very aware of girls and wrote about his loves and crushes often. Reminded me of me at his age . . .except his were requited loves, heh. Anyway, one day a rather attractive female colleague stopped in to chat with me while they were doing independent work. We talk for a while, laugh, and she leaves. Julio's staring me down as I walk back in. He gives me a bit grin and two thumbs up.

From then on he always made a point to notice when I talked to pretty girls. I miss him.


  1. Hello...

    I just wanted to say that Melissa shared this blog with me a few weeks ago and I check back in on it every once in a while. I'm so glad you're keeping it up. Your kids sound awesome and hilarious. You capture those classic moments very well. I might start writing down what my kids do and say too.

  2. Thanks a lot! I really appreciate that.
