Wondering About My Baby......

Thirty four years ago today I was delivering my second child. That was an exciting day! Back in those days you didn't know ahead of time if you were having a boy or a girl. I'll never forget hearing "It's a Boy" and crying like a baby myself because I was so happy!

When you have a baby you can't help but wonder what kind of personality they will have
and what they will become when they grow up!

Will he be a cowboy?.............





..................or a Fire Fighter?




Will he be a politician or a historian?................








Or a musician?...........






Or maybe an artist?...........





How 'bout an actor?.................




Maybe a Mr. Fix-It?.............






Maybe a newspaper journalist?............







After he graduated for the second degree.......





He found a beautiful wife Carrie..........





Then after all those years of wondering what my baby would become........





He became  "MR. MARTIN"!!




HAPPY 34TH BIRTHDAY, MR. MARTIN !

I love you,
Mom

Oh my... that made me CRY!! I would give anything to be able to go back to school for just one year as a kid and have Chris as my teacher!!! My favorite teacher was a brilliant man who loved science and math and made us students love it. I just know that Chris has the ability to teach children to LOVE to learn.

Chris has always been SO stinkin' smart and funny and talented. I imagine you had the best time watching him grow up to be "Mr. Martin".

Happy birthday, Chris!

This made me cry...maybe because my baby is having a birthday today and growing up. Chris is so handsome and just has the best personality. I'd say being a teacher, he became just about all those things you wondered rolled up in one. I know you are so proud of him!
