34th Birthday

Yesterday, on September 24, I turned 34! Which means I was born in 1974. What do all of those have in common…4.

4 is my favorite number and it has been for as long as I can remember. Some other random thoughts:
– My sons, Caden and Cooper, are 3 and 4, respectively.
– “Four is the only number in the English language for which the number of letters in its name is equal to the number itself.” – Wikipedia
Kirby Puckett, one of my childhood “idols” wore number 34.

Birthday Highlight:
After dinner, we are sitting around eating carrot cake cupcakes that Shannon and Cooper made for me. Caden, who is carefully licking the frosting off of the top stops, points to the “cake” part of the cupcake, and says:

Caden: “We don’t eat this part, right? … It have poop!”
Shannon (my wife): “No sweetie, those are just raisins”

After some good laughs, we couldn’t figure out what was funnier – the fact that he thought we’d serve him food with poop in it, or the fact that he was carefully nibbling around the “poop”.
