Ego boost from the 16 year old

From last year’s trip to Dublin

I saw below at my friends blog, and thought it was a fun thing to do. If I remember correctly I’ve done a similar once before.

I’ll do it with both of my (yeah yeah our) boys. First out is my 16-year old. His answer to no. 13 made me so proud I started crying. Yes, I love you to death my son, even if your attitude last night made it tough. On the other hand, as I take no bullshit, from you or anyone else, we are back on speaking terms today.
