My oldest son's eleventh birthday is coming up very soon.
He is a non-materialistic person, not interested in acquiring possessions or even in having any money to his name.
When I asked him recently what he wants for his birthday, he was surprisingly specific.
He wants a suit.
From Dad. Not from Mom.
Because it is Dad's department.
I'm not sure how to interpret this, but I have to admit it made me sad. He's growing up.
I don't know where he will be wearing his suit. Out to breakfast on Saturday morning? To a meeting with his teacher about the next book report? To baseball try-outs?
