So there I was. On a Saturday night. 5 days overdue. Jumping up & down during the commercial breaks of SNL. Because my sister was getting married 3 states away in less than 2 weeks.
Christopher Bowman Hendrix was born in the wee hours of July 6, 1999.
He was a busy baby but also pretty content. He was often bruised due to his adventurous nature. Before long he was riding a scooter with handlebars higher than his head around York Court.
He was the first 5 year old I had that actually went to Kindergarten.
And 4 years later in the 3rd grade he asked me how to spell his name.
Now he’s a skateboarding, surfing, class clown kinda guy and I’m ever so glad he was born.
